Placental chorioangioma is the commonest tumour of the placenta arising from the vascular tissue. It is benign in nature. It is reported in about 0.5–1% of deliveries. Chorioangiomas, if large can affect both the mother and the fetus. We report a case where the mother presented with polyhydramnios with a chorioangioma arising from the placenta. Caesarean section was done for fetal distress. Many a times, placental chorioangioma is detected by routine antenatal scan before other clinical features sets in. In some situations, similar to ours, it may be detected only postnatally. Hence, antenatal ultrasound should mention the placental composition apart from the placental location. This would help in identifying chorioangioma enabling regular monitoring, timely intervention and delivery of such cases.
