REPORT OF CASE  Mrs. W. B., aged 32, had given birth to two healthy children. Sometime after her period of July 7, 1916, she became pregnant. She noticed that after the fifth month she did not get any stouter. Nov. 6, 1917, a dead fetus was born. It was now seven months past full term.Nov. 1, 1918, a normal child was born, and still lives. After nursing the child, menstruation became regular till sometime after her period of April 3, 1922, when she again became pregnant. All went as usual for about five months, when she noticed that the increase in size had ceased. Dec. 17, 1923, she gave birth to another dead fetus—eleven months after full term.In both cases the child died when about five months in utero, and the mother made an uneventful recovery.
