ABSTRACT

This paper describes the process by which fibrosis and calcification on the right ventricle papillary muscle –lesions associated with evolved myocardial infarction (MI)–was identified as the ultimate cause of intrauterine fetal death (FD). This is the first case described of fetal MI as a determining cause of FD in utero, with no malformative pathology or tumor present. Just a case of early neonatal death from MI due to thrombotic occlusion of the left coronary artery was found, which suggests that the event could happened during childbirth or even in utero.
