Current genetic evaluation of stillbirths is based on clinical grounds (autopsy, examination of tissues) and laboratory testing (karyotype, microarray analysis). For 25-65% of stillbirths the etiology cannot be determined by current standard investigations. Our current research is aimed towards finding single gene disorders assocaited with fetal abnormalities by using whole exome sequencing (WES) and in the future whole exome sequencing.
