We have studied the autopsy findings of 220 stillborn fetuses and 319 neonates who died during the first week of life and were born between January 1, 1964 and December 31, 1983. An attempt was made in the course of this review to determine the sex ratio in various weight groups and aetiological categories. In almost all weight groups and all pathogenetic categories, the number of males was higher than that of females, providing an overall sex ratio of 147 of the stillborn fetuses and neonates dying during the first week.
