A BJOG theme issue entitled "Infections in pregnancy" is freely available online until March 31. The articles in this special issue of BJOG highlight significant viral, bacterial and microbial infections that complicate pregnancy. The way each one causes damage, and how mothers and fetuses respond (or sometimes fail to respond) is described. Prevention and treatment strategies that are currently available, and priorities for future research, are presented in reviews, commentaries and original research articles.
