Abstract

Perinatal autopsy remains the standard for determining the cause of a perinatal loss. Despite improvements in prenatal diagnosis, perinatal autopsy remains important in the confirmation and further delineation of prenatal diagnosis. We report here on a fetus spontaneously aborted at 23 weeks of gestation with sonographic detection of a single bone in the forearm. Fetal autopsy aided the diagnosis of VACTERL association.
