Title: Villi of complete hydatidiform mole (human)
Description: (A): Macroscopy aggregation (1) of abnormal villi of hydatidiform mole intermingled with blood clots (2).
(B): After dissection of a complete mole grape-like aggregations of dilated chorionic villi are presented as numerous liquid-filled vesicles (1) varying in diameters (from few mm up to 1 cm) surrounded by blood clots (→ 2). The composition of the liquid resembles that of young chorionic villous stroma. (By courtesy of G. P.
