Abstract

Exaggerated placental site is a non-neoplastic lesion characterized with infiltration of extravilleous intermediate trophoblasts into the myometrium and the walls of blood vessels of the normal placental implantation area. Typically, they were seen in spontaneous and/or elective abortion materials. Rarely, the clinical picture may be associated with normal pregnancy or postpartum bleeding. A case of an exaggerated placental site is presented in this article. To our best knowledge, this is the first case demonstrating an association between exaggerated placental site and term pregnancy. It is aimed to review the current information about this rare condition.
