Abstract

One hundred forty-three cases of septic abortion managed over 5 years are reviewed. Sepsis was more common after induced abortion often performed by non-gynecologists. Instrumentation was commonly performed in the homes, chemists and poorly equipped private clinics. Complications were generally severe and maternal mortality was 8.4%. Treatment was individualized but there was no standard antimicrobial regime.
