I delivered prematurely. Placenta pathology report showed acute chorioamnionitis, but there were no clinical consequences. Can you have chorioamnionitis with neither mom or baby suffering an infection?

In brief: Chorioamnionitis

You did suffer consequences with the preterm delivery.
The chorionic layer along with the amnion were infected and initiated contractions.

In brief: choreo

There was an infection but apparently the mother and baby were both able to fight it off.

In brief: Yes

Very much so. It may be limited to placenta only and it may be in early phase of it without affecting the mother or baby.
