Abstract

A 31-year-old woman became unconscious shortly after delivery of a stillborn fetus in the thirty-sixth week of gestation. Tonic-clonic seizures and deepening coma occurred soon after delivery. Despite intensive supportive therapy, the patient died three days after delivery. A superior sagittal sinus thrombosis and extensive bilateral cerebral infarction were found on necropsy.
