An Intrauterine Fetal Demise (IUFD) is a major obstetrical catastrophe at any gestational age but the emotional pain and distress caused by this event increases in direct relation to the duration of pregnancy. The objective of the present study was to determine the possible causes of Intrauterine Fetal Demise (IUFD), and to determine preventive measures. Intra uterine fetal death (IUFD) is defined as fetal death after 20weeks of gestation. It can be further classified into early or late IUFD. Early IUFD, if fetal death occurs before 28 weeks of pregnancy and late IUFD, if fetal death after 28 weeks.
