Hofbauer (1903) identified a sub-population of cells in the placenta that could be identified by specific histological stains, the finding he published 2 years later in 1905.
- human villous macrophages
- highly vacuolated cells
- located the core of placental villi and cord
- macrophages with micropinocytotic activity and phagocytosis ability
- possible paracrine role for early stages of placental vasculogenesis
