Background: Giant choriangiomas are rare placental tumours, associated with a high prevalence of pregnancy complications and a poor perinatal outcome. We report a case of giant chorioangioma at 31 week and 5 days gestation with severe polyhydramnios. Later presented with PPROM and fetal distress and prompted us to proceed with cesarean delivery. Baby developed RDS, sepsis, anemia, jaundice and required transfusion of blood derivatives, intensive phototherapy and managed in NICU. Baby was in NICU for 28 days and discharged. Mother’s recovery was uneventful. Large placental chorioangioma are rare and may lead to adverse perinatal outcomes. Fetal surveillance by ultrasound including Doppler studies is essential to optimize fetal outcome.
