Rhabdomyoma is the most common cardiac tumor detected during fetal life and childhood; nevertheless its incidence is very low. This is a histologically benign tumor, but in some cases may cause hemodynamic repercussion with date of low cardiac output, arrhythmias and exceptionally intrauterine death as occurred in our case, which was detected by obstetric ultrasound and fetal echocardiogram and corroborated by histological study.

    Background: Fetal death (stillbirth), that occurs every 100-200 pregnancies in industrialized countries, has not significantly decreased in recent years, mostly because of scarce research activities in this field. Fetal death is often, in up to 60-80% of cases, unexplainable, even after routine...
