Placental chorioangioma

Case contributed by Dr Aneesh km

Presentation

Routine first trimester antenatal scanning of a 11- 12 weeks gestation.

Patient Data

Gender: Female
Ultrasound

A well circumscribed hypoechoic mass at the fetal surface of the placenta, adjacent to the cord insertion, bulging into the amniotic cavity. The mass has internal vascularity and adjacent feeding vessels.

Case Discussion

Possibility of chorioangioma of placenta was considered. An important differential is intramural/submucosal fibroid, however intraplacental location and internal vascularity with feeding vessel, favour the diagnosis of chorioangioma.

Chorioangioma is the most common benign placental tumour and frequent incidental finding in antenatal scans. Follow-up monitoring for size, development of polyhydramnios or even hydrops fetalis.
