Fetus papyraceus, also called fetus compressus, is a mummified and compressed fetus as a result of fetal death during pregnancy. It is always associated with twin pregnancy, and the other litter is usually alive to compress the dead feuts. The cause of death of the fetus is not always clear. Recently we had a case of fetus papyraceus from a 25-year-old woman, which we thought most probably caused by velamentous insertion of the umbilical cord into the dividing membrane of the placenta, resulting fetal death and subsequently becoming fetus papyraceus.
