Placentae of 22 one-humped camel concepti with crown-rump lengths (CRL) ranging from 2.5 to 26 cm were studied. The placentae were processed for light, transmission and scanning electron microscopy of exposed surfaces and microvascular corrosion casts. In very early stages of pregnancy (2.5-4.5 cm CRL) three froms of fetomaternal interrelationship are described. (1) Precontact, where the mononuclear trophoblast cells are still separated from the uterine epithelium by a gap containing… CONTINUE READING
