[Morphological aspects of the placenta in women - carriers of cytomegalovirus and herpes infections].Lik Sprava. 2002 Jul-SepLS
A macro- and microscopic study was made into the placenta in those women who are carriers of cytomegalo- and herpes virus-associated infections. Development of chronic fetoplacental insufficiency manifested by gain in the mass of the placenta, volume of macropathology, has been found to be a prominent feature of the placenta in the above female subjects. Histologic studies suggest to us that development of the fetoplacental insufficiency is related to immaturity of the villious chorion, diffuse villusitis, intervillusitis, basal deciduitis. Cytomegaloviruses were identifiable in the vascular endothelium in a small proportion of the studies made.
