Abstract

Chorioangioma (chorionic angioma) is the most common non-malignant placental tumor. Taking into account its morphological structure, it can have significant influence on fetal condition and pregnancy, depending on its size. In the presented case a substantial placental tumor was diagnosed and complications typical for chorioangioma, such as fetal hemodynamic disorders, polyhydramnios, gestational diabetes and premature labor, were observed. The applied treatment led to normalization of the fetal and maternal condition and to prolongation of the pregnancy.
