Chorioangioma is the most common tumor of placenta. Usually it is small in size, less than 4 cm in diameter, asymptomatic and so is only accidentally diagnosed during routine ultrasound or after careful histologic examination. It is a benign, non-trophoblastic vascular tumor coming from the primitive chorionic mesenchyme whose etiology and pathophysiology is still unknown. Its prevalence is about 1% of all pregnancies. In larger tumor, various and significant both maternal and fetal complications are reported.

Abstract

Chorioangioma is the most common tumor of placenta. Usually it is small in size, less than 4 cm in diameter, asymptomatic and so is only accidentally diagnosed during routine ultrasound or after careful histologic examination. It is a benign, non-trophoblastic vascular tumor coming from the primitive chorionic mesenchyme whose etiology and pathophysiology is still unknown. Its prevalence is about 1% of all pregnancies. In larger tumor, various and significant both maternal and fetal complications are reported.
