count, received AZT, and the placenta showed chorioamnionitis with cord-vessel vasculitis and chronic deciduitis
Samples from the 10 women who had miscarriages and positive PCR results showed various histologic features, including deciduitis
, chorioamnionitis, and plasmocytes in the decidua, which are compatible with chronic endometritis.
This ascending infection into the uterine cavity from the lower genital tract can result in deciduitis
, chorioamnionitis, amniotic fluid infection, fetal sepsis and intrauterine death.
Also, the placental hypoxic lesions did not positively correlate with inflammatory patterns of placental injury, such as acute chorioamnionitis, chronic villitis, or plasmacytic deciduitis
, the first one being most common in group 4, with placental infections rarely associated with impaired placental function.
Hematoxylin and eosin-stained histologic sections of all placentas were investigated for deciduitis
, vasculitis, endometritis, or chorioamnionitis.
