Chronic intervillositis of unknown etiology (CIUE) – Relation between placental lesions and perinatal outcome

This study talks about Chronic intervillositis of unknown etiology (CIUE) which appears to be yet another term for CHI/CHIV/MCI. It looks at 20 pregnancies across 14 women affected by CIUE; 10 resulted in live births and the recurrence rate for multiple pregancies was 100% (it should be noted however, that this is a smaller sample than the Redline/Boyd study above). It suggests that how bad the placenta looks in terms of lesions on it directly links to how well (or otherwise) the pregnancy went. It also compares several studies of multiple patients as well as looking at a study that followed one lady who had 4 successful pregnancies before starting to have problems. She had 2 stillbirths and 3 miscarriages and then went on to have one more child successfully with Aspirin and Prednisone. It notes the difference between chronic villitis of unknown etiology (CVUE) and CHI/CIUE.
