OBJECTIVE Our purpose was to determine the morphometric diffusing capacity of the human placental villous membrane in cases of maternal iron-deficiency anemia. STUDY DESIGN Material from 10 term placentas from mothers with hemoglobin levels < 10 gm/100 cm3 was compared stereologically with control material from women with normal hemoglobin concentrations matched for age and parity. Data were compared with Student t test. RESULTS Birth and placental weights were constant between the two… CONTINUE READING
