Maternal Diseases Complicating Pregnancy

  • Kurt Benirschke
  • Peter Kaufmann


Numerous diseases may complicate pregnancy. The most important of those that affect placental development and function are herein reviewed. My own experience with some of these entities is added. With some of these complications of pregnancy, the placental findings may simply be confirmatory of the disease. With others, placental pathology may be the first indication of an abnormality. Despite many reports of diseases that complicate pregnancy, associated placentas are often not examined, or they are not reported in the descriptions. It is unfortunate because those placentas could aid in diagnosis and knowledge of the pathogenesis of these conditions. Moreover, a better understanding of the placenta could allow us better insight into the mechanisms of the effects that certain conditions have on the fetus.
