Is puerperal fever the same as puerperal infection?

By Zaira Salvador B.Sc., M.Sc. (embryologist).
Last Update: 05/19/2022

Usually, both concepts are used synonymously, although it would be more correct to use the terms puerperal infection or sepsis to refer to this condition in women, since puerperal fever is a sign of infection that only refers to the increase in temperature.
