Keywords:Chorangioma, Placental Hemangioma, placental neoplasm, placental disk, placental abnormalities, pregnancy, pregnancy outcomes
A Chorangioma is a rare benign non-trophoblastic placental vascular neoplasm that develops from the placental primitive chorionic mesenchyme. It happens in 1% of pregnancies. Because Chorangioma may hurt the health of both the mother and the fetus, it is crucial to distinguish it from other placental disorders. In this article, we present a case study of an incidental Mixed Chorangioma variant found in a 29-year-old mother's placental disk during routine histopathological examinations as part of a large-scale prospective histopathological survey of the placenta in a tertiary healthcare facility in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State, Nigeria. In addition, we offer a comprehensive overview of the existing literature on Chorangiomas, focusing on their pathology, clinical importance, and treatment. This article aims to advance the understanding of Chorangiomas and increase clinicians' and pathologists' awareness of the need for early detection and suitable treatment.
