Six cases of mothers whose placentas demonstrate multiple infarctions with a central intraparenchymal hematoma are presented. The histology is distinct from intervillous thrombus and Kline hemorrhage. The mothers have a history of multiple fetal losses, eclampsia/preeclampsia, and at least 1 case of documented recurrence. A distinct name is proposed for this lesion, infarction hematoma, which would help clarify further studies.
