Abstract

A case of placental abruption during air travel is described. None of the known predisposing factors could be demonstrated. Although it may be a true coincidence, the connection between the abruption and the flight could not be totally excluded. Safety of air travel in pregnant women is discussed, and it may be summed-up that flying is not contraindicated in uncomplicated pregnancy.
