Even Porter and Hook, commenting on the scarcity and scattered distribution of systematic data on human embryonic and fetal death, failed to acknowledge our neglect of the associated pathology [2]. Similar disinterest is exemplified in a current textbook on forensic pathology that devotes only three sentences to "fetal death," at that in a chapter on electrocution and lightning injury to pregnant women [3]! This is clearly a departure from the attention paid to criteria of live birth versus stillbirth in older medicolegal texts.
