Causes of PTL have not been established but several risk factors are associated with it Aim The aim of this study is to find association of genitourinary tract infections in aetiopathogenesis of preterm labour. Subject and methods This was case control study conducted over one year.100 pregnant women having PTL without risk factors with intact memane were compared with 100 pregnant women having labour at > 37 weeks. The two groups were screened for urinary and vaginal infections. At delivery further swabs were taken from foetal surface of placenta.
