Abstract  
The authors report a patient admitted at 12 weeks of pregnancy with an acute infectious syndrome, leading to abortion, sepsis, and multiple organ failure. Admission to intensive care unit (ICU) was needed after curettage for incomplete abortion complicated by uterine atony, hemorrhage, and septic shock. The patient had multiple organ failure and required non-invasive ventilation. Hemoculture showed streptococcus G bacteremia. She had no evidence of concurrent infection, mainly genital or urinary, except amygdalitis few days before. Hematogenous spread to the gestational sac could have possibly been the cause of her sepsis. Streptococcus G infection during pregnancy can lead to severe consequences.
