Chorioangioma, the non trophoblastic tumour, constitutes the commonest benign growth of the placenta. Though benign, 30% rate of maternal or foetal complications are associated with large masses. Sonography including colour Doppler imaging provides the best modality not only for its diagnosis but also the foetal status. A case of large placental chorioangioma has been reported here resulting in dismal foetal outcome diagnosed on antenatal ultrasound.
