Amniotic fluid embolism is a serious and devastating complication in obstetrics. Despite a low incidence of 1-6:100.000, it remains one of the leading causes of maternal death in developed countries. Several risk factors have been proposed, but studies are conflicting, and to date there are no ways to predict or prevent this condition. Despite early and aggressive treatment, mortality and risk of neurological impairment remain high. We present a classic case of amniotic fluid embolism during labour and briefly discuss the current recommendations for treatment.
