Abstract

Massive perivillous fibrin deposition (MPVFD) of the placenta and renal tubular dysgenesis (RTD) are relatively rare diseases with potential recurrent risks that have not previously associated in the literature. Herein, we report the clinical course, autopsy findings, and placental pathologic features from 3 consecutive pregnancies delivered in 1 woman, all showing recurrent MPVFD in the placenta and RTD in the bilateral fetal kidneys.
