Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The antepartum death of a fetus in a multiple gestation can be associated with mortality or major morbidity in the survivor. To evaluate the risk after death of one fetus, all cases of multiple gestation complicated by a fetal death were evaluated. There were 17 multiple gestations in which one fetus died, with 19 surviving infants. The incidence of fetal death in multiple gestation was 2.6%. There was one case of major morbidity in a monochorionic gestation.
