Conclusion: A number of pregnancy variables are predictive of HCA [histopathologic chorioamnionitis] in our births, including Milwaukee 532 zip residence. Fever was absent in nearly half of all deliveries with HCA and in a majority of preterm deliveries with HCA. Following birth, clinician suspicion of CA may help guide neonatal antiobiotic use.
