Abstract

Chorioangioma is the most frequent nontrophoblastic tumor of the placenta with a incidence ranging from 0.01 to 1.3%. Vascular anomalies of the placenta coincidental with infantile hemangioendothelioma (IH) of the liver are rarely described. Here we report a case of a large chorioangioma of the placenta associated with cutaneous hemangiomatosis and IH of the liver. The relationship between hemangiomas and placental chorioangioma is discussed.
