Browne PC, Linfert JB, Perez-Jorge E. Successful Treatment of Preterm Labor in Association with Acute COVID-19 Infection. Am J Perinatol. 2020 Apr 24. doi: 10.1055/s-0040-1709993.

Novel coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) infection occurring during pregnancy is associated with an increased risk of preterm delivery. This case report describes successful treatment of preterm labor during acute COVID-19 infection. Standard treatment for preterm labor may allow patients with acute COVID-19 infection to recover without the need for preterm delivery. KEY POINTS: · Acute COVID-19 infection is associated with a high rate of preterm delivery.. · Standard treatment for preterm labor such as intravenous magnesium sulfate, antepartum steroid therapy and antibiotic prophylaxis for group B streptococcus infection were effective in this patient.. · In the absence of maternal or fetal compromise, acute COVID-19 infection is not an indication for early elective delivery.
