Dystocia reported in four goats were diagnosed with mummification of either single or twin foetuses. Mummification of foetuses was confirmed by per-vaginal examinations. One case was diagnosed as papyraceous type and other three cases were haematic type of mummification. Death of mummified foetus in one case was in third trimester whereas, in rest of the three cases it was in second trimester. Dystocia in all the four cases were due to lack of lubrication. However, both the foetuses in all four cases were delivered per-vaginally by gentle traction. All the does were medicated with fluids, antibiotics, anti-inflammatory and ecbolic drugs for five days and all four goats recovered uneventfully.
