Introduction: the umbilical cord is the peduncle that connects the fetus to the placenta. The umbilical torsions are defined as one or more complete rotations of the cord on its longitudinal axis.

She underwent cesarean delivery, female fetus died, weight 4020 g, meconial amniotic fluid, with an umbilical cord twist.
Conclusions: we found a fetal antepartum fetus with 39.4 weeks of gestational age in a simple pregnancy, which presented an umbilical cord with torsion and a stenosis at the base from its fetal origin.
