Background: Premature rupture of membranes is the most challenging obstetric dilemma which occurs even in low risk pregnancies and can convert a traditional pregnancy into a high risk pregnancy. This study aims to determine outcome, especially in the context of developing countries to help in formulating intervention strategies.
Materials and Methods: A hospital based observational, prospective study was conducted with 100 patients with diagnosis of PROM at or more than 37 weeks of gestation to study maternal and fetal outcome.
Results: The rate of maternal morbidity was 28%, commonest cause was febrile illness (12%). Perinatal morbidity was seen in 31% of cases. Clinical early onset neonatal infection was the commonest cause. Perinatal mortality was not seen.
Conclusions: Morbidities were associated with increased duration of PROM to delivery interval. Prediction of these morbidities is an important step in the management of infection associated with PROM.

Keywords: Fetal outcomes, Maternal outcomes, Premature rupture of membrane.
