This paper presents the case of a 40-year-old woman who died from amniotic fluid embolism on the third day after operative delivery (IV) at 38 weeks of gestation. Histological examination was conducted using staining with hematoxylin and eosin and Schiff reagent. The basis for the postmortem diagnosis was the presence of solid and liquid components of amniotic fluid in the uterine and pulmonary vessels with the absence of morphological substrate of other critical obstetric states.
