Placental chorioangioma is the most common benign tumor of placenta. The relationship of vascularized chorioangiomas to adverse pregnancy outcome is well recognized. We report 3 cases of placental chorioangioma. Hypervas-cularization of the lesions in all patients and the immune hydrops with adverse fetal outcome in 2 cases are the complications of our mini-series. Uultrasonography and Doppler ultrasonography findings were useful in establishing the prenatal diagnosis and the prognosis.
