Microscopic chorionic pseudocysts are also associated statistically with other placental hypoxic lesions, particularly placental infarction, global hypoxic patterns of placental injury, and LN.
As the practical importance of recognizing LN and MCP has never been compared with the well-known chorionic disc hypoxic lesions, particularly placental infarction and global hypoxic patterns of placental injury, this analysis is intended to retrospectively address this issue from a large database of placental material.
