In brief: Cultures
Blood, amniotic fluid and cervical cultures are useful to determine intraamniotic infection, however clinical criteria are sufficient to clinch the diagnosis and prompt expert medical therapy is warranted to promptly evacuate the uterus.
Low amniotic fluid glucose, positive gram stain, and increased white cell count in the amniotic fluid are all suggestive of intraamniotic infection.
