Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A case of complete fetal heart block associated with intra-uterine growth retardation, SSA- and SSB-antibodies is presented. The fetus died in utero. Autopsy revealed damage to the fetal cardiac conducting system together with severe placental fibrosis and recent infarctions. These findings and a slightly prolonged activated partial thromboplastin time indicated also the presence of the lupus anticoagulant.
