The Wisconsin Stillbirth Service Program has provided a mechanism for the collection and analysis of unbiased and representative information concerning stillborn infants.
Generated diagnoses and diagnostic categories within the first 1,000 referrals (including 789 stillbirths) is summarized here.
Among all referred stillborns, 24.5% were found to have an identifiable intrinsic fetal cause of death.
Specific diagnoses were extraordinarily heterogeneous, with about 85 different processes identified with this group.
No single diagnosis was found in more than 1 1/2% of the evaluated stillborns.
