Of all the gestational trophoblastic tumors, the gestational choriocarcinomas have the worst prognosis and the most uncommon. We report a case diagnosed on a full-term placenta, discovered incidentally. The patient, gravida 2, para 1, delivered a hypotrophic infant at 38 weeks gestation. The placenta was examined in the laboratory to perform(More)
Feto-maternal hemorrhage (FMH) is the cause of late fetal death in 1.6%-11% of cases. In spite of this high frequency, its pathological features have received little attention. The definitive diagnosis of lethal FMH requires confirmation of sufficient fetal blood volume loss. This is determined by tests such as the Kleihauer-Betke test, which may not have(More)
The indications of the pathological examination of the placenta are mainly represented by uteroplacental vascular deficiency. The clinical context is often evocative, but it can sometimes be solely an intra-uterine growth retardation or an unexplained in utero fetal death. So, the pathological lesions of this uteroplacental vascular deficiency must be(More)
Prenatal testicular torsion is a very rare morbid entity, described in the literature to occur when the testicle is intrascrotal, around the 34th week of gestation. Here we report a case of early testicular necrosis. This male fetus was the product of a medical abortion at 27 weeks. During evisceration, a left testicular nubbin free in the peritoneal cavity(More)
Gastrointestinal (GI) graft-versus-host-disease (GVHD) is a common and severe complication of allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, but clinical and histological features are unspecific. The aim of this study was to correlate the histological GI GVHD grade with the clinical outcomes. In a retrospective study of 112 patients with clinically(More)
OBJECTIVE The aberrant right subclavian artery is a malformation of the aortic arch present at less than 2 % of the individuals in the general population. This incidence is higher in trisomy 21, making it possible use the aberrant right subclavian artery as a prenatal marker of trisomy 21. MATERIAL AND METHODS This work, which relates to a series of(More)
Koolen-de Vries syndrome (MIM#610443) is a rare microdeletion syndrome involving the 17q21.31 region, which was first described by Koolen in 2006. Clinical and behavioral characteristics have been extensively reported from more than 100 postnatal cases including infants, children and young adults. The syndrome is highly clinically heterogeneous, but the(More)
