17] In this study, we demonstrated DC-SIGNR expression on Hobauer cells and decidual
cells as well.
Placental infarction, decidual
vessel thrombosis, chronic villitis and excessive perivillous fibrin deposition were seen in a few sections.
In summary, up to now, the placental membrane was a site looked at mainly for features of acute inflammation (chorioamnionitis), meconium, hemosiderin, amnion nodosum, and decidual
The proportion of epithelial, subepithelial, predecidual, mature decidual
cells in each selected field was determined by counting them at a high magnification.

Lateral placental growth occurs by trophoblast cell invasion of decidual
Untreated hypertension boosts the risk of intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) from two- to threefold through several mechanisms, including decidual
vasculopathy, a prematurely "aged" placenta with thickened basement membranes in terminal villi, and impaired blood flow from the uterus to the placenta.
Placental findings also include fibrinoid necrosis, atherosis of decidual
vessels, and intimal thickening.
We found that the cultured chorionic villus specimen was entirely of maternal, probably decidual
, origin (Fig.
Slides were evaluated to determine the presence and extent-severity index of HEV, villitis of unknown etiology, fetal-placental vessel thrombi, villous fibrosis, and erythroblastosis (nucleated red blood cells within chorionic and/or umbilical vessels), and the presence of lesions indicative of maternal hypertension, including primary infarcts, changes described by Tenney and Parker, (13) decidual

Progesterone and estrogen regulation of rat decidual

We therefore interpreted the epithelioid cells as cytotrophoblasts, syncytiotrophoblasts, intermediate trophoblasts, and decidual
cells, respectively, and concluded that products of conception from an unrelated case contaminated the specimen from the esophageal biopsy.
