Objective: To evaluate the incidence and late fetal death risk factors. Methodology: A study was made in 100 women with a diagnosis of late fetal death assisted in two public hospitals in Valencia, Venezuela, during 2003. Results: There were 11,306 fetal losses, 356 cases of fetal death, with a late fetal mortality rate of 16.5/1000 live birth; 23% of pregnant women were older than 35 years old; 55% had fetal death after the 28th week of gestation, 31% smoked during pregnancy; 48% of the women had infections, and 38% had high blood pressure. The fetal and ovular causes were 31% and 69%, respectively. Conclusions: The fetal death is a potentially prevented complication and its main risk factors were: maternal infections, high blood pressure and smoking cigarettes
