Obstetrics and Gynaecology
Chorioangioma is a benign tumour of the placenta consisting of blood vessels and stroma that proliferates beyond normally developing chorionic villi. Most of the small tumours are asymptomatic but large placental tumours are associated with unfavourable outcomes for foetus and mother. We present a case of a 23 year old primigravida who had a large chorioangioma that lead to intrauterine foetal demise. Major complications and diagnostic tools for chrioangioma have been discussed.
