Endometrial polyps embedded in the fetal membranes have only rarely been described. A review of the English literature showed only one abstract describing this occurrence and to the best of our knowledge, there have been no other publications of this entity. Herein we present a case of a 37-yr-old woman with a history prior abortion and complicated pregnancy (type 2 diabetes mellitus and preeclampsia) who delivered by cesarean section. Although the placenta did not show hypertensive vasculopathic changes or other pathologic findings, an endometrial polyp embedded within the fetal membranes was present. Recognition of this rarely reported entity is important in order to avoid confusion with a significant neoplastic process.
