Fetus papyraceus is a rare condition. We describe the intrauterine fetal death with subsequent fetus papyraceus of one twin due to blunt maternal trauma in the second trimester of pregnancy. Blunt maternal trauma should raise the clinical suspicion of fetal death and dictate further observation; in a twin pregnancy, the possibility of a single fetal death should be investigated.
