Question: I had an evacuation after baby stopped growing
Dear Doc, I had an evacuation after baby stopped growing. pls i wanted an explanation to the result of the histology done.
Nature of specimen : product of evacuation for missed abortion.
Clinical summary / Diagnosis: Missed abortion of prime cyesis
MACROSCOPY: specimen consists of an irregularly shaped, haemorrhagic soft tissue altogether measuring 3x2x2cm. Processed whole.
MICROSCOPY: Histologic sections of tissue show endometrial stroma containing scanty endometrial glands. Elsewhere are fibrocollagenous connective tissue and evidence of recent haemorrhage. No decidua is seen. No chronic villi are seen.
these findings suggest that the baby has been evacuated completely and no residual is remaining.
at this stage, whatever findings are expected of a growth stopped baby are seen. no other abnormal changes have been found,.
so the report is absolutely normal and nothing to worry about.
