Abstract

The prevalence of asymptomatic bacteriuria and the subsequent risk for developing a symptomatic urinary tract infection in pregnancy are established; however, other issues regarding asymptomatic bacteriuria have remained continued sources of controversy and investigation. The relationship of asymptomatic bacteriuria to adverse effects on maternal and fetal health are reviewed, and the mechanisms of increased susceptibility to symptomatic urinary tract infections discussed. Guidelines for cost-effective screening of pregnant women for bacteriuria are offered, and effective treatment regimens are reviewed.
