Abstract: The study compared the outcome of induction of labour with prostagl and in E2 vaginal tablets in patients with premature rupture of membranes [PROM] at term in different parity groups. A retrospective review was made of the hospital records of 169 women attending the maternity unit of King Faisal Military Hospital, Saudi Arabia. There were no statistically significant differences between the 3 groups [parity 0, parity 1-4 and parity 5+] in rates of labour augmentation, caesarean sections, neonatal intensive care admissions or low Apgar scores. There were no serious complications of induction of labour such as infection or uterine hyperstimulation or rupture. Prostagl and in E2 may be used with care for labour induction in women with PROM at term, even gr and ultiparas, unless there is history of previous caesarean delivery
