    Abstract

    The necropsy diagnoses in 78 stillborn and young infants have been compared with the clinical diagnoses in an attempt to justify post-morten examination in this age group. Clinical diagnosis was confirmed in over 88% of cases but unexpected changes in diagnosis were made in six cases, which indicates that selection is of no value.
