Abstract

A case is described in which aminocentesis caused placental injury, abruptic placenta, and fetal hemorrhage which caused fetal distress. This was primarily manifested by reduction of fetal movements and later by fetal heart rate deceleration. Emergency cesarean section was performed and a live infant was born. The importance of monitoring the fetus after amniocentesis by assessment of fetal movements is stressed.
