Background: Although maternal malignancy is relatively common, maternal metastases to the products of conception remains a rare event. There is no available literature that describes the incidence of placental metastases as a cause of abruption and fetal death. importanc
Case: We present an unusual case of placental abruption and disseminated intravascular coagulation leading to fetal demise secondary to placental metastases of unknown origin.
Conclusion: In our case placental abruption likely resulted from metastases to the intervillous space.
