In forensic practice intracranial hemorrhages are usually seen in cases of trauma but non traumatic, acute bilateral intraventricular hemorrhage that is in the young pregnant female is very rare and such cases come across by a forensic pathologist is still rarer. Here we present one such case of sudden natural death of fatal isolated pan intraventricular hemorrhage. The deceased was primigravida woman with 20 weeks of gestation, who was subjected to autopsy at the Department of Forensic Medicine, in our college with alleged history of domestic violence with her husband as complained by deceased’s parents and brother; she was married one year back.
