Fetal thrombotic vasculopathy is a chronic disorder characterized by thrombosis in the fetus leading to vascular obliteration and hypoperfusion.

It is associated with cerebral palsy and stillbirth.[1]


It can be diagnosed by histomorphologic examination of the placenta and is characterized by fetal vessel thrombosis and clustered fibrotic chorionic villi without blood vessels.
