Abstract

Perinatal death due to maternal injury is unusual unless associated with extensive maternal trauma or death. An unusual case of neonatal death due to in utero traumatic splenic rupture in the absence of significant maternal injury is presented. The case alerts physicians responsible for neonatal care to the existence of treatable causes of neonatal distress following maternal trauma.
