This 16-year-old primigravida presents at 16 weeks. She is referred for severe oligoamnios due to premature rupture of membranes. She was tested for hematologic markers of infection as well as culture of vaginal secretions and urine. At 19 weeks we perform an amniocentesis for fetal karyotyping and amnioinfusion. The infused liquid was lost in one week so we decided to perform weekly serial infusion amniocentesis. The growth, fetal anatomy and Doppler indices remain normal. Fetal karyotype was 46XX normal.
