Examination of placenta can generate facts that might be necessary in the first line or later management of mother and infants. Among the reasons it has been seen that diabetes & hypertension are specifically the ones causing more destruction to placental structure & altering its function as a consequence. In our part of the world and specifically Pakistan a very little research has been carried out regarding this very important issue. A cross sectional comparative study was done with Non probability, purposive sampling. These subjects were divided into 3 groups. Group A - control, group B - diabetic, & group C as hypertensive. After gross examination, microscopy was done for fibrosis of placental tissue and calcification of stroma. Statistical analysis was done on SPSS a result of these study, the following outcomes were reported. Abnormalities in cut surface were 10% in group ?A?, 58% in group ?B?, 52% in group ?C?. Amount of calcification in stroma in group ?A? (2 %) compared to group ?B? (12 %), group ?A? (2 %) compared to group ?C? (16 %) p-value (<0.005) was statistically significant. No. of Villi with fibrosis in group ?A? (2.88) compared to group ?B? (9.04), group ?A? (2.88) compared to group ?C? (6.00) showed p-value (<0.005) significant also. Average fibrosis in placental tissue & Calcification in stroma, was significant in both diabetics & hypertensive in comparison to the control group. Control group patients had 90% normal cut surface whereas, abnormality was seen mostly in the other 2 groups.
