A nephew of late Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat left for Paris on Friday to obtain a copy of his uncle's medical file, a Palestinian official said.
The file details Mr Arafat's illness and cause of death.
"Nasser Al Qidwa left Gaza City for Paris where he will obtain the official and confidential medical report on the death of Yasser Arafat," the unnamed Palestinian official told AFP.
Under French law, the family may decide to make the files public.
Palestinian officials asked for the files amid rumours over how he died. France's privacy laws have prevented the cause of death being made public.
Earlier, a senior Palestinian said he expected Arafat's nephew, Nasser al-Kidwa, to pick up the report from the French authorities.
But a lawyer for Mrs Arafat said she received the document at 1545 (1445 GMT) on Friday.
