This article provides a report of a 22-week gestation intrauterine fetal death, incorrectly sexed as male on examination at time of delivery. The fetus was later found to have a normal female genitalia and karyotype. The authors discuss when errors in sexing are likely and recommend routine use of quantitative-fluorescent PCR (QF-PCR) for assessment of fetal sex in cases of extreme prematurity, maceration and fetal hydrops.
