The purpose of this study was to characterize the ultrastructural and enzyme-histochemical features of Hofbauer cells in the placental villi of second-trimester abortions. Hofbauer cells in the abortive placenta had more numerous cytoplasmic processes and more prominent phagosomes as compared to gestational age-matched normal control placenta. Acid phosphatase activity was demonstrated in both the lysosomes and on phagosomal membranes of these cells. Our results indicate that Hofbauer cells in… Expand
