In brief: Amniocentesis

The diagnosis is suggested by severe abdominal pain, decreased fetal movement, and maternal fever.
The definitive test is amniocentesis, which is to obtain a sample of fluid, usually under ultrasound guidance, and then sending the fluid for appropriate laboratory studies. This is a very serious condition that, if confirmed, almost always requires delivery of the baby.
