Currently, the pathology associated with abnormal placentation during the third trimester of pregnancy presents a diagnostic challenge. These anomalies correlate with different pathological entities and can cause important complications, leading to increased maternal and fetal morbidity. When discussing placentation pathologies during the third trimester, this is not only in reference to placenta previa, adherent placenta, abruptio placentae, placenta circumvallata, vasa previa or tumors of placental origin, but also to changes in fetal growth related to altered placentation. Increasing evidence in the literature has established the benefit of detection, specific management, and choice of the most suitable time to terminate pregnancy for fetuses with growth disturbances. Hence, the study of placentation abnormalities during the third trimester of pregnancy is very useful in the routine clinical activity of obstetricians.
