21,38-44) Clusters of multinucleate giant cells in the decidua basalis and excessive numbers of extravillous trophoblasts are less commonly seen in this than in other patterns of diffuse hypoxic placental injury, (21) most likely because of the association of PR with deep trophoblastic, myometrial invasion, which was proven, at least in maternal anemia.
