Positive C4d immunostaining of placental villous syncytiotrophoblasts supports host-versus-graft rejection in villitis of unknown etiology.

Abstract

ABSTRACT Chronic villitis of unknown etiology (VUE) occurs in 5% of placentas submitted to pathology and is characterized by lymphohistiocytic infiltration of chorionic villi. VUE is associated with fetal growth restriction, preterm birth, and recurrent pregnancy loss. Accumulating evidence indicates that VUE may represent a host-versus-graft reaction… (More)
