Expression analysis of leukocytes attracting cytokines in chronic histiocytic intervillositis of the placenta: Freitag, von Kaisenberg, Kreipe, Hussein

Abstract: Chronic histiocytic intervillositis of the placenta (CHI) is a rare and potentially recurrent disease. Characteristically it shows accumulation of CD68+ cells in the intervillous space but no destructive tissue infiltration. An immunopathological background is likely but it is unknown what attracts circulating monocytes to the placenta. Methods: We analysed the expression profile of 102 inflammation- […]
