Abstract

A screening programme for the detection of asymptomatic bacteriuria in patients attending an antenatal clinic is described. The results obtained from the use of urinary antiseptics in a controlled trial over a period of two years are presented. The number of patients developing clinical pyelonephritis, fetal maturity at delivery and birth weight were recorded for treatment and control groups and compared with the equivalent results obtained from the total population of patients seen at the clinic.
