Intra-amniotic infection (IAI) across intact membranes by Candida alfcicans is a rare occurrence. We report two cases of preterm labor and Candida chorioamnionitis that were diagnosed by intrapartum amniocentesis. The diverse maternal and neonatal outcomes observed indicate that Candida IAI is associated with significant, unpredictable maternal and neonatal morbidity.
