About this book


Careful evaluation of the placenta can often give much insight into disorders of pregnancy in the mother and fetus. The techniques of gross placental examination are not difficult, but a systematic approach is necessary to be complete. Color Atlas of Gross Placental Pathology, Second Edition is designed to aid in the careful and thorough gross examination of the placenta by providing an illustrated manual of examination that includes normal variations, abnormal findings, as well as unusual pathology. This Atlas contains 186 illustrations, 154 in color.

Cynthia G. Kaplan, MD is Professor of Pathology at the State University of New York at Stony Brook in Stony Brook, New York.
