Perinatal infections continue to plague pregnancies both in the United States and worldwide. Most perinatal infections are asymptomatic in the mother but may have devastating consequences to the fetus. In the last decade, many advances in maternal and fetal diagnosis as well as treatment have occurred and will be addressed.
