Abstract

We are going to report a case of placental cysts diagnosed during the first trimester of pregnancy. Three placental cysts with a maximum diameter of 7 mm, 8 mm and 5 mm were respectively diagnosed by means of ultrasonography in a 34 year-old woman at the 8th and 9th week of gestation. During the same period, the human chorionic gonadotropin levels were within the normal range of our reference values. Between the 14th and 15th gestational week the cysts disappeared gradually. The fetal karyotype was that of a normal male fetus. During the pregnancy the patient did not have any gestational complications, the fetal growth was normal and no Doppler alterations were detected. In conclusion, we can state that isolated cysts of the placenta during the first trimester of pregnancy may be considered benign.
