AB  - INTRODUCTION: Asymptomatic bacteriuria has been reported to be associated with
      adverse pregnancy outcome. This study sought to determine the prevalence and
      complications of asymptomatic bacteriuria amongst parturient in the University of
      Port Harcourt Teaching Hospital (UPTH). METHODS: The study was a prospective
      cohort study involving 220 eligible antenatal attendees. Urine culture and
      sensitivity was conducted for each participant and the fetomaternal outcome
      between affected and unaffected women were compared and p value <0.05 was
      considered significant. RESULTS: Sixty-five of the participants had asymptomatic 
      bacteriuria giving a prevalence of 29.5%. Twenty-three (35.4%) cultures yielded
      Klebsiella spp while Fifty-eight (89%) of the cultured organisms were sensitive
      to Nitrofurantoin. There was no statistical difference in the rate of prelabour
      rupture of membranes, preeclampsia, preterm delivery, birth asphyxia and low
      birth weight between affected and unaffected women. CONCLUSION: Contrary to
      widely held view, there was no significant increase in adverse pregnancy outcome 
      amongst affected women.
