The occurrence of trisomy 22 confined to the placenta is rare. We report on a patient who presented with fetal abnormal Doppler velocimetry (elevated umbilical artery pulsatility index), but serial ultrasound examinations revealed a spontaneous recovery throughout pregnancy. A healthy baby was normally delivered at 40 weeks.
