The paper aims at analyzing the histopathological modifications induced by the amniotic infection on present fetal membranes and in the absence of clinical signs of chorioamnionitis. Such an evaluation is important in the context of postpartum fetomaternal complications. The objective was to determine the relation between the microbial invasion in the amniotic cavity and the severity of inflammatory lesions of the placenta, of the membranes and the umbilical chord.
