    Introduction: Placental examination in a problematic pregnancy is of prime importance, in yielding valuable information about the duration and nature of the process that occurred throughout the pregnancy. This includes a thorough and thoughtful gross and morphometric examination, careful sectioning and clarity of the basic microscopic findings along with the various changes. Reduced placental perfusion happens to be the unique feature of placenta, resulting in preeclampsia. The placenta is also called the mirror of intrauterine fetal experience and remains the best record of every infant’s prenatal experience. The pathological changes in the placenta adversely affect the fetal outcome. This study is an attempt to observe and compare the morphometric measurements of normal and preeclamptic placentae and to correlate the same with fetal outcome. Aim: The aim of this study is to co..
