Delivery of a baby with
severe combined immunodeficiency at 31 weeks gestation following an extreme
preterm prelabour spontaneous rupture of the membranes: a case report
If left untreated, severe combined
immunodeficiency can lead to an acute susceptibility to infection. The
intrauterine environment is sterile until the amniotic membranes rupture. The
vaginal flora then ascends into the genital tract, thus increasing the risk of
chorioamnionitis. An extremely premature and prolonged membrane rupture is
associated with a dismal prognosis for an immunocompetent preterm fetus. There
are no case reports to date that detail the outcome of an immunocompromised
preterm baby following prolonged rupture of membranes.
We present the case of a
32-year-old Indian woman who delivered a 31-week gestational baby who had a
severe combined immunodeficiency following premature prelabour prolonged
rupture of the membranes at the 14th week of gestation.
Extreme preterm prelabour
spontaneous rupture of membranes in an underlying condition of severe combined
immunodeficiency does not necessarily lead to an unfavourable outcome.
