Abstract Purpose This study aimed to determine whether MSAF is associated with endometritis after delivery. Methods This cohort study was conducted from 2012 to 2013 in Kosar Hospital of Qazvin, Iran. All women with cesarean delivery (1239 women) beyond 37 weeks of gestational age participated in the study. Data were collected on rates of endomyometritis, quality of amniotic fluid and were analyzed with bivariate and multivariate statistics. Probability values of\.05 were considered statistically significant. Results We found that among 1239 women with cesarean delivery at term 2.34 % were diagnosed with endometritis. Compared with deliveries with clear amniotic fluid, those with MSAF had higher rates of endomyometritis (1.5 vs 3.2 %, P\.04). Conclusion We found that the presence of MSAF is associated with puerperal infection even when being controlled for confounders. Keywords Meconium _ Amniotic fluid _ Puerperal infection _ Endomyometritis
