  • [Title] [Subamniotic hematoma: 3D and color Doppler imaging in the differential diagnosis of placental masses and fetal outcome].
  • The aim of this study was to evaluate the role of 3D and color Doppler (CD) imaging in prenatal diagnosis and management of placental subamniotic hematoma and to speculate about the prenatal diagnosis of the solid and cystic placental masses protruding from the fetal surface of the placenta.
  • Five pregnancies in which a large mass was seen protruding from the fetal surface of the placenta were studied in the period between January 2006 and January 2008.
  • 3D and color flow imaging were settled in order to monitor the sonographic features of the mass during pregnancy, to evaluate the continuity of the solid portion of the mass with the fetal placental surface and to detect the blood flow signals within the mass.
  • Sonographic features of the mass protruding from the chorionic plate show a consistence typical of a solid mass, in the recent subamniotic hematoma, or a predominantly cystic mass in the chronic subamniotic hematoma.
  • The joint and the continuity of the solid portion of the mass with the fetal placental surface were correctly identified by prenatal ultrasound 3D examination.
  • In conclusion prenatal sonographic features in recent subamniotic hematomas include the detection of a complex structure overlying the fetal plate of the placenta next to the cord insertion, covered by a thin membrane (the amnion), containing a predominantly solid mass arising from the chorionic plate.
  • Differential diagnosis has to be done between recent subamniotic hematoma and placental chorioangioma by the use of color flow imaging: it displays blood flow within the mass in the case of chorioangioma, and conversely demonstrates the lack of color flow signals in the hematoma.
  • The 3D imaging is conclusive in order to identify the continuity of the solid mass with the fetal placental surface.
  • The chronic subamniotic hematomas are predominantly cystic structures in which there is a solid component attached to the fetal surface of placenta, representing a retracted clot and/or a fibrin deposit, underlying the hematoma.
  • The main differential diagnosis in the case of a cystic mass overlying the fetal plate of the placenta, covered by a thin membrane, during the ultrasound examination, is between a placental cyst and a large pseudocysts of the umbilical cord at the placental insertion.
  • In the case of a pseudocyst, the transonic formation is clear and lacks of a solid mass within.

  • [Title] Multifocal rapidly involuting congenital hemangioma: a link to chorangioma.
  • Common infantile hemangioma is intriguing because of its variable presentation, rapid postnatal growth and slow regression in childhood.
  • The phenotype has expanded by characterization of rare vascular tumors that arise in the fetus and manifest at birth as rapidly involuting congenital hemangioma (RICH) or non-involuting congenital hemangioma (NICH).
  • Two weeks later a small, infantile hemangioma arose on his neck.
  • This patient stimulated a review of what is known about placental vascular tumors and their possible relationship to fetal and infantile hemangiomas.
  • We suggest that chorangioma and umbilical cord hemangioma are clinically and histopathologically similar to cutaneous and hepatic RICH.
  • These placental vascular tumors can also occur in conjunction with solitary and multiple infantile hemangiomas.

  • [Title] In utero imaging of the placenta: importance for diseases of pregnancy.
  • Maurice Panigel demonstrated by X-rays, almost 40 years ago, placental maternal blood jets in non-human primates.
  • Although to researchers the importance of the placenta is evident, in clinical obstetrical imaging, the fetus takes precedence.
  • The placenta is imaged almost as an after thought and mostly to determine its location in the uterus.
  • In animal species, the placenta was imaged with techniques which would be considered too invasive (or too costly for routine use) in humans, many pioneered by Panigel: radioangiography, radioisotopes scintigraphy, thermography, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and spectroscopy, positive emission tomography (PET) and single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT).
  • Ultrasound allows for detailed, and, as far as is known, safe analyses of not only placental structure in the human but also its function.
  • Earlier, only 2-dimensional grey-scale was available and more than 20 years ago, placental grading was popular.
  • Later, colour imaging and spectral Doppler analysis of blood velocity both in the umbilical artery and within the placenta as well as the uterus and fetal vessels became essential and, more recently, the use of ultrasound contrast agents has been described, albeit not yet in a clinical setting.
  • Three-dimensional ultrasound permits evaluation of the placenta in several planes, more precise depiction of internal vasculature as well as more accurate volume assessment.
  • Several medical disorders of the pregnant woman or her fetus begin or end in the placenta, and ultrasound is the optimal investigation method.
  • Obvious examples include pre-eclampsia and other forms of hypertension in pregnancy, less than optimal fetal growth (i.e. intrauterine growth restriction), triploidy (and its placental manifestation: partial mole), non-immune hydrops as well as several infectious processes.
  • Ultrasound is also particularly suited to evaluate specific placental conditions, such as abnormal placentation (placenta previa and accrete for instance), gestational trophoblastic disease and placental tumors (e.g. chorioangioma).

  • [Title] Microscopic chorionic pseudocysts in placental membranes: a histologic lesion of in utero hypoxia.
  • Grossly apparent and microscopically intermediate trophoblast-lined subchorionic, septal, and cell island cysts are relatively common placental findings.
  • To analyze the clinicopathologic correlations of histologically similar but grossly inapparent microscopic chorionic pseudocysts (lakes) arising in the chorion laeve of placental membranes (mccpm), selected placental and clinical parameters of all 172 consecutive placentas with mccpm (study group, sg) and all consecutive 3743 placentas without mccpm (comparative group, cg) from years 1994 through 2005 were statistically compared; mccpm were observed in 4.3% of all placentas and in 14.9% of placentas from preeclamptic mothers from 24- to 42-week pregnancies, their gestational weeks' distribution almost mirroring that of the distribution of preeclampsia, with a peak in the middle of the 3rd trimester.
  • Microscopic chorionic pseudocysts (lakes) arising in the chorion laeve of placental membranes were statistically significantly more common in patients with preeclampsia and maternal diabetes mellitus.
  • In placentas with mccpm, decidual arteriolopathy, homogeneous placental maturation, global hypoxic pattern of placental injury, chorangiosis, placental infarction, laminar necrosis of membranes, stem obliterative endarteritis, erythroblasts of fetal blood, and decidual hemosiderosis were statistically significantly more common, while acute chorioamnionitis, villous fibrosis, and villous edema were less common (P < or = 0.05).
  • There were no statistically significant differences between sg and cg in meconium staining, retroplacental hematoma, perivillous fibrin deposition, intervillous thrombi, chronic villitis, chorangiomas, placenta accreta, amnion nodosum, and marginate/vallate placenta.
  • Highly statistically significant associations of mccpm with preeclampsia and a cluster of placental lesions known to be linked to placental hypoxia indicate that the mccpm form in response to hypoxia, particularly in patients with preeclampsia; mccpm should therefore be regarded and reported as a hypoxia-associated placental lesion.

  • [Title] Expression of p57KIP2 in infantile hemangioma.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: Cases of mammary, salivary gland, liver (one each), and placental (2 cases) capillary hemangiomas all with histological features akin to IH as well as typical examples of cutaneous (8 cases) IH were analyzed by immunohistochemistry with antibody against p57(KIP2).
  • The liver hemangioma and both chorioangiomas were from patients with Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome.
  • Positive and negative controls included normal placental tissue and complete hydatidiform mole, respectively.
  • RESULTS: Endothelial cells from the skin, breast and salivary gland hemangiomas were p57(KIP2) positive while chorioangiomas and liver IH presenting in patients with Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome were negative.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Endothelial cells of IH not associated with BWS normally express p57(KIP2) while chorioangiomas and IH of the liver associated with BWS do not.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Chorangiocarcinoma is the name designated to a chorangioma with trophoblastic proliferation manifesting increased proliferative activity.
  • Other studies challenged this entity by demonstrating that proliferation of the trophoblast around chorangioma is a common phenomenon.
  • We present a case of a unique vascular lesion in a term placenta with a malignant trophoblastic component.
  • Microscopic examination of a well-demarcated placental mass revealed a chorangioma with multiple nodules composed of pleomorphic cells displaying focal multinucleation, large areas of necrosis, and high mitotic activity.
  • It is concluded that the tumor presented herein, displaying a histologically unequivocal malignant trophoblastic component in a benign chorangioma, is a true chorangiocarcinoma, and should be included within the category of gestational neoplasia as a tumor closely related to choriocarcinoma.

  • [Title] Characteristics of histopathological and ultrastructural features of placental villi in pregnant Nepalese women.
  • The placenta is an important functional unit for gas transfer between mother and fetus.
  • The placental membrane, consisting of trophoblast layer interposed between maternal and fetal blood, plays an active role for intensity of respiration, but no morphological evidence has been documented.
  • In this study, characteristics of ultrastructural features of the Nepalese placental villi investigated in recent years are reported. (1) The gross characteristics of placental pathology in the Himalayan group were represented by marked subchorionic fibrin deposits and increased chorionic cysts in contrast to low incidence of intervillous thrombosis compared with those of the Japanese group. (2) As characteristics of histological findings of the placental villi between Himalayan and Japanese groups, the incidence of chorangiosis and chorangioma in the Himalayan group was significantly higher than that in the Japanese group. (3) Accompanying an increase of vasculosyncytial membrane (VSM) in the villi, thickness and separation of basement membrane of the syncytium in addition to increased apoptosis of syncytial cell nuclei were recognized. (4) As characteristic ultrastructural features of chorionic villi of Nepalese placentas, an increase of mitochondria and cystic formation of rough endoplasmic reticulum (rER), in addition to appearance of lamellar bodies similar to alveolar epithelial type II cell in organellae of the syncytium, were observed.
  • These ultrastructural changes of the placental villous capillaries may be ascribed to hypervascularization caused by the chronic hypoxic state.

  • [Title] A precarious pregnancy involving a patient with a large placental chorioangioma: a case report.
  • Chorioangiomas are common placental neoplasms that are primarily asymptomatic, but the larger subtypes have a variable presentation and can result in severe pregnancy complications.
  • We report a case of a pregnant patient who presented with a 10 x 12 x 10 cm placental chorioangioma at 32 weeks, despite an unremarkable ultrasound at 28 weeks.
  • Since these more substantial chorioangiomas can induce fetal mortality, close surveillance with perinatology and neonatology consultation is necessary to enhance the probability of a favorable patient prognosis.
