The membranes showed no significant acute inflammatory cell infiltrate that would indicate an acute chorioamnionitis, however, as you can see from the images above, scattered clusters of intensely eosionphilic cellular material were present on the amniotic surface of the membranes. These clusters displayed varying degrees of degenerative change and appeared mostly amorphous and granular, but where more preserved, appeared to be partly composed of degenerate foetal squames. Careful inspection also revealed haemosiderin deposition (may not be seen in these images).
