Abstract: 

Background & Aim: The aim of this article is Evaluation of causes of Perinatal death.
Materials & Methods: During a four-year period, 2000-2004 in Alzahra hospital, 74 autopsies of dead fetus and neonates were performed using a standardized protocol with systematic examination of all major cranial, thoracic and abdominal organs including microscopic examination.
Results: The possible causes of the death were identified in 82.4 percent (61cases). Structural abnormalities were identified in 64.8percent (48 cases). There was no pathologic finding in 10.8 percent (8 cases). Maceration was seen in 6. 75 percent (5 cases). Asphyxia and intrauterine growth retardation of the fetus (IUR) are identified respectively in 18 percent (13 cases) and 13.5 percent (10 cases).
Conclusion: Perinatal autopsy is valuable in different ways: the confirmation of ante-mortem diagnoses; the identification of unexpected disorders, and exclusion of other (perhaps inheritable) conditions which might be have caused the intrauterine death; and also perinatal autopsy might be a best quality control instrument for medical cares.
