Abstract

One of the less common complications of multiple gestation is intrauterine demise of one or more fetuses. despite the many case reports in the literature, there are no firm guidelines regarding the management of this problem. We herein report the favorable outcome of the conservative approach we chose for managing four patients; two with twins, one with triplets and one with quadruplets (first report in the literature). Strict follow-up based on frequent physical examinations, ultrasonographic assessment of fetal growth and well being, and coagulation profiles is mandatory. Individualization of delivery dates and mode is recommended.
