Methods: PCT and CRP were measured from UCB and were verified through a prospective study of newborns with appropriate birth weights, without asphyxia or signs of bacterial infection whose mothers were diagnosed with untreated or inadequately treated UTI during the final trimester of pregnancy. The blood of newborns was analyzed according to Rodwell criteria. Was calculated the relative risk to detect altered PCT and/or CRP concentration in UCB in newborn with positive Rodwell criteria. Results: samples from 97 newborns at term were analyzed according to Rodwell criteria. Fifty-six of them showed negative criteria. The RR was 2.0 (95% CI – 1.1 – 3.6 p = 0.03) according to PCT and 2.3 (95% CI – 1.1- 4.9) p = 0.03 according to CRP. Conclusion: A normal value to PCT or CRP available from UCB duplicate the possibility to Rodwell negative criteria result in peripheral blood of the neonate, away from the possibility of infection in newborn infants of mothers who had UTI in the pregnancy
