CONTEXT Two relatively unknown and recently described placental membrane hypoxic lesions (laminar necrosis and microscopic chorionic pseudocysts) have never been compared with time-honored, focal (infarction), and diffuse hypoxic lesions of placental parenchyma. OBJECTIVE To compare the effect on placental diagnosis of the above placental membrane hypoxic(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to evaluate placental lesions found in women with preeclampsia compared with normotensive control subjects and to determine whether the presence of these lesions are related to gestational age at delivery. STUDY DESIGN Placental disease of women with preeclampsia at 24 to 42 weeks of gestation was compared with the(More)
OBJECTIVES To describe three cases of placental mesenchymal dysplasia (PMD) associated with abnormal karyotype and review the cases reported in the literature. METHODS The cases were retrieved from the files of three different institutions. A search of the English language literature was performed using Medline database. RESULTS Placental abnormalities(More)
Lobular capillary hemangiomas are common, benign, vascular soft-tissue tumors located in the head and neck during the childhood and early adulthood. Report of these lesions in the central nervous system has been anecdotal. The case of one patient treated for spinal cord compression secondary to a capillary hemangioma with elevated proliferation index is(More)
We present a prenatal case of congenital peribronchial myofibroblastic tumor referred as a congenital pulmonary airway malformation (CPAM) with hydrops and polyhydramnios at 30 weeks’ gestational age. US and fetal MRI findings did not fit with the referral diagnosis, raising the possibility of intrinsic lung tumor. Fetal hydrops worsened and the baby was(More)
Laminar necrosis of placental membranes (LN), a band of coagulative necrosis at the choriodecidual interphase, is a histologic lesion of unclear pathogenesis that has been reported in placentas from preeclampsia, preterm premature rupture of membranes, and preterm abruption. To better explore other possible correlations of LN, we performed a retrospective(More)
Grossly apparent and microscopically intermediate trophoblast-lined subchorionic, septal, and cell island cysts are relatively common placental findings. To analyze the clinicopathologic correlations of histologically similar but grossly inapparent microscopic chorionic pseudocysts (lakes) arising in the chorion laeve of placental membranes (mccpm),(More)
The Czech Republic reported one of the highest incidence rate in cutaneous melanoma (CM) in Europe and because this incidence has been increasing, mainly among young people, the main goal of our study was to establish sun exposure behavior risk factors for CM formation and to evaluate whether the young generation of Czechs is exposed to a higher risk of CM(More)
A possible role for the transcription factor v-ets avian erythroblastosis virus E26 oncogene homolog 1 (ETS1) in human trophoblast cell differentiation was examined using a highly enriched fraction of human mononuclear cytotrophoblast cells (CTBs) that differentiate spontaneously in vitro to a multinucleated syncytiotrophoblast cell (STB) phenotype. ETS1(More)
