EDITORIAL COMMENT: This case indicates that when fetomaternal haemorrhage is the cause of critical fetal reserve as observed by cardiotocography the fetus may be doomed in spite of prompt delivery by emergency Caesarean section, although there are reports of successful fetal outcome with immediate delivery in such cases. The moral of this case report is that cardiotocographic evidence of reduced fetal reserve of any degree indicates delivery when the pregnancy is at term, especially when there are other complications, such as fetal growth retardation.
