Chorangioma is a nontrophoblastic benign placenta tumor. It can be characterized by its size clinically; Many pregnancies are accompanied by small chorangioma; however, large chorangioma happens rarely (1:50,000), and it is more likely to occur in women over 30, first pregnancies, and diabetics. A 40-year-old diabetic mother, second gravida with a history of one abortion, was admitted to the hospital due to polyhydramnios. At the 19th week of gestation, we observed multilocular cystic at the edge of the placenta measuring 33*39 according to color doppler imaging. Also, we saw the fetal stomach a little prominent with a double bubble. Sonography done in the 25th week revealed a slight polyhydramnios. The stomach was entirely prominent with a double bubble. An avascular multilocular cystic at the superior edge of the placenta measured 48*63 mm; at the 35th week of gestation, an avascular solid cystic area measuring 69*78 with bulging to the amnion confirmed the placental chorioangioma on the 39th week's patients underwent cesarian section. The placenta was fundal. The fetus and placenta weighed 3618g, which we had a healthy 3100g healthy boy, and a multilocular cystic weighing 518g binded to the placenta.
