To the Editor:
—In The Journal, August 12, page 563, Dr. Froehlich reports a case of death of fetus due to twisting of the cord. In a somewhat similar case under my care, labor occurring on the date expected, the patient had not felt life for six days. Physical examination revealed absence of heart sounds. A fully developed male child was born dead. There was a knot in the cord about 6 inches from the fetal end, drawn tightly enough to cut off the circulation completely.
