Placental Site Nodule (PSN): An Uncommon Diagnosis with a Co
Placental site nodule is an uncommon, benign, generally asymptomatic lesion of trophoblastic origin, which may often be detected several months to years after the tenancy from which it resulted. Placental Site Nodule usually presents as menorrhagia, intermenstrual bleeding, or an abnormal pap smear. The placental Site Nodule is benign, but it is important to distinguish it from the other benign and malignant lesions like decidua, placental polyp, exaggerated placental site, and placental site trophoblastic tumor, and squamous cell carcinoma. Follow-ups of typical Placental Site nodules do not show recurrence or malignant potential. Placental Site Nodule is an uncommon condition that should be suspected in cases of abnormal bleeding, especially following uterine surgical procedures preceding the last pregnancy. Timely diagnosis and treatment are necessary to differentiate it from potentially malignant placental lesions with a similar presentation.
