Infantile multicystic encephalomalacia after maternal bee sting anaphylaxis during pregnancy

Abstract

We report a case of infantile multicystic encephalomalacia after maternal bee sting anaphylaxis in the 30th week of pregnancy. The clinical features and findings at necropsy are described, and it is suggested that these are the result of severe fetal hypoxia secondary to maternal hypotension.
