LOBATO MIGUELEZ, José Luis; FRANQUELO WIERHAN, Cristóbal; SAN ROMAN SIGLER, María Victoria  and  LOPEZ VALVERDE, Miguel. Lethal acute fetal hemorrhage from ruptured vasa previa. Rev Cubana Obstet Ginecol [online]. 2012, vol.38, n.4, pp. 0-0. ISSN 0138-600X.

Vasa previa is a rare condition associated with high perinatal mortality. Fetal blood vessels cross over the internal os and they are the result of an insertion cord velamentous. We report a case of fatal acute fetal distress caused by rupture of a vessel in the second period before delivery. We discuss the etiology and clinical management of this condition.

Keywords : rupture of vasa previa; velamentous cord insertion.
