Abstract

Placental neoplasms involving the fetal membranes are exceptionally rare. In leiomyomas and endometrial stromal neoplasms, a uterine origin for nodules in the membranes is also a possibility. We present a case of an incidental endometrial stromal nodule found in the decidua of the free membranes and review the literature.
