Resumen

SEDANO L, Manuel et al. Reflections about the obstetric attitude towards anencephalic fetuses. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2008, vol.136, n.6, pp.789-792. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872008000600016.

In Chile, where abortion is illegal we must deal with these situations at the end of the pregnancy period. Of 35,682 labors attended at our hospital, 14 were anencephalic fetuses. In 50% of these a cesarean section was done and in one, a hysterectomy was required due to uterine inertia
