Abstract

Objective: To identify the association between maternal and umbilical cord vitamin D levels with suspects of early-onset of neonatal sepsis (EONS) in newborns from mothers with preterm premature rupture of membranes (PPROM).
Methods: This is a retrospective cohort study conducted from January 2017 to Augusts 2018. Data was taken consecutively from medical records and previous study data at Dr. Cipto Mangunkusumo and Persahabatan Hospital, Jakarta.
Results: From total of 72 infants from mothers with PPROM, 22 infants (31%) were EONS-suspected and 50 infants (69%) were not EONS-suspected. There was a significant association between maternal and umbilical cord vitamin D levels with EONS.
