MedLine Citation:
PMID:  17906047     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A complete evaluation of a stillbirth or neonatal death may explain the cause of death, direct further investigation of the family, and be particularly valuable in counseling parents about recurrence risks in future pregnancies. The results of the autopsy, placental examination, laboratory tests, and cytogenetic studies should be communicated to the involved clinicians and to the family of the deceased infant in a timely manner.
