Chorioamnionitis is an acute inflammation of the membranes and chorion of the placenta typically due to ascending polymicrobial infection in the setting of membrane rupture. It is a common complication of pregnancy associated with significant maternal, perinatal, and long-term adverse outcomes. We present a case of placental infection leading to preterm delivery, severe neonatal sepsis, maternal wound infection, postnatal readmission, and prolonged hospital stay. This virulent infection was caused by multidrug–resistant extended-spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL)-producing Escherichia Coli (E. Coli), which represent a major worldwide threat according to the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). It was managed with appropriate antibiotic therapy, patient-centered approach, and multidisciplinary team involvement that led to favourable maternal and neonatal outcome.
