Fetal death incidence is 5-10 per 1,000 births. About 25% of the women who carry a dead fetus for more than 4 weeks will show significant alterations in their coagulation system. The treatment for a patient with endouterine fetal death depends on when the pregnancy is terminated, based on the ecographic fetus age. There were 15,070 births from January 1983 to December 1994 in Department B of the Institute of Obstetrics and Gynecology, University of Torino. We took into consideration the cases ofintrauterine fetal death between the 26th and 40th week before labour. This study is based on a cohort of 57 cases of intrauterine fetal demise from the 24th to the 40th week of pregnancy before spontaneous labour.
