  • Essential information is distilled into a succinct, bulleted format with numerous high-quality images to facilitate learning.
  • Provides necessary reference charts and sample templates for gross and microscopic evaluation.
  • Highlights recent critical diagnoses in placental pathology, such as fetal thrombotic vasculopathy or placental maturation defect.
