Currently, pediatric autopsy is more accepted than adult autopsy because parents want more information about the death of their child and the implications for future pregnancies. These intricate, very valuable pathologic examinations can be performed from the embryonic stages through childhood. When combined with clinical information, this meticulous examination provides the necessary information to educate families concerning future pregnancies. The postmortem examination improves both treatment and the standard of care for the future.
