Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Lithopaidion, or stone child, is generally a single rare asymptomatic formation that evolves from an undiagnosed and untreated advanced abdominal pregnancy. The dead fetus is retained in the maternal abdominal cavity, which causes calcification. In this paper, we review the literature on the epidemiology, etiopathogenesis and clinical features of lithopaidion and report a unique case of lithokelyphos in a patient with an ectopic fallopian pregnancy. We propose a model to unify the data. The new word 'lithopaidion' can be utilized instead of lithopedion. © 2014 S. Karger AG, Basel.
