Allison Lanzet

Allison Lanzet's labor with her first baby was induced with Cytotec. Her baby was born in good condition. Lanzet was discharged from the hospital. Six hours later, she had an episode of respiratory distress stemming from septic shock. She died en route to the hospital. Autopsy showed that fragments of placental membrane were left in her uterus, causing the infection that precipitated the septic shock.

Allison Lanzet is survived by her husband and daughter. She was born August 7, 1962 and gave birth on September 21, 1999. She died on September 24, 1999 in Coral Springs, Florida, at the age of 37.
