Case 14a: A 25-year-old female with no significant medical history was admitted for a complicated delivery of twins. The first twin was delivered vaginally after a preterm premature rupture of membranes. The second twin was delivered via cesarean section 21 days later. Shortly after delivery, the patient became febrile and developed diffuse abdominal pain. She was treated for 5 days with clindamycin, gentamicin, and ampicillin for presumed endometritis, but her fevers persisted.
