Abstract

Over an 11-year period, we encountered four cases in which an unexpected diagnosis of cystic fibrosis (CF) was first established on the basis of typical autopsy findings. Our experience suggests that the occurrence of such cases is more common than generally appreciated and emphasizes the often crucial role of the autopsy in medical practice.
