Coronavirus disease 2019 infection and placental histopathology in women delivering at term
Coronavirus disease 2019 causes a severe systemic inflammatory response and results in a hypercoagulable state with widespread microthrombi. We hypothesized that it is plausible that a similar disease process may occur in the fetal-maternal unit. Coronavirus disease 2019 in term patients admitted to labor and delivery is associated with increased rates of placental histopathologic abnormalities. fetal vascular malperfusion and villitis of unknown etiology.
