A case of umbilical cord hemangioma associated with placental chorangiomatosis is reported. A premature male infant was delivered vaginally at 34 weeks of gestation. Congenital abnormality and visceral hemangioma were not detected after birth. The placenta did not exhibit any macroscopic abnormalities. In the middle of cord, an enlarged portion with 3 cm in length and 2.5 cm in diameter was identified. Microscopical examination revealed an umbilical cord hemangioma associated with segmental chorangiomatosis in the placenta. Among all the reported cases of umbilical cord hamangioma, only two cases were found associated with placental pathological changes, and neither of them was diagnosed with chorangiomatosis. As the first case reported umbilical cord hemangioma accompanied by placental chorangiomatosis, the pathological changes of umbilical cord hemangioma and associated placental changes are discussed in detail, and the relevant literature is reviewed in this report.
