The anchoring villus is lined by cytotrophoblasts (4) which are covered at the outer side by multinuclear syncytiotrophoblasts (5). Intervillous space is marked by (6). (See also POJA-L1227). (7) phagocytic Hofbauer cell, (8) decidua cells; (9) points to the trophoblasts of the cytotrophoblast shell that expands laterally and covers the areas between the anchoring villi (3).
