Background: Chorangiosis is a condition in which the number of vascular channels in the noninfarcted, nonischemic areas of the placenta increases dramatically. Chorangiosis rarely occurs in normal pregnancies.

Aims: To study the demography, maternal and fetal causes of chorangiosis.

Study Design: A retrospective descriptive study.

Place and Duration of Study: Total of 73 patients with chorangiosis were studied in Department of Pathology Saveetha Medical College,during the period ofAugust 2020 and February 2021.

Methodology: Study included 73 patients of placental chorangiosis.The clinical history and demographic data was obtained from the patient’s medical records.Thematernal and fetal causes were studied, and clinico-histopathological correlation was done.

Results: This study includes 73 postnatal women,of whichthe rate of cesarean section was noted to be 69.8% and the mean value were obtained showed mean gestational age of 37.5 weeks, 70 live births and 3 neonatal deaths; mean placental weight is 480 grams and birth weight 3970grams.The mean 1 minute and 5 minutes APGAR score is reduced indicatingdisturbance in fetal vitals immediately after birth.

Conclusion: Chorangiosis is a rare illness, which is associated with an increased risk of prenatal and neonatal morbidity and mortality.So, it should be regarded as a key prognostic indicator of poor pregnancy outcomes and should be essentially reported in the histopathological evaluation.
