Women (N=46) with ultrasound-diagnosed lethal fetal anomaly in late pregnancy were studied. Psychological instability, general psychological distress, depression, and despair were measured over four years and related to normal versus "neurotic" personality dispositions. Findings are presented; the need for medical intervention, emotional support, and psychosocial screening is discussed. (Author/EMK)
