Abstract

We report a case of subclinical Candida albicans chorioamnionitis with mid-trimester cervical dilation diagnosed by amniotic fluid culture and Gram stain. Proteomic analysis of amniotic fluid demonstrated protein biomarkers previously associated only with bacterial intra-amniotic infections. We hypothesize that since amniotic fluid culture of yeast may take days, novel tests such as proteomic profiling may lead to the development of rapid diagnostic tests for fungal intra-amniotic infections.
