Plate 4

Fig. 8. Uterine gland opening into the implantation cavity at the point indicated by the arrow. The glandular epithelium is degenerating and leucocytes are visible V in the cell detritus occupying the lumen, and in the interglandular tissue which also contains strands of peripheral syncytium. x c. 550.

Fig. 9. Showing the free edge of the operculum where it overlaps the decidua capsularis and covers remnants of the uterine epithelium which are degenerating and discontinuous. The operculum consists of a fibrinoid matrix containing degenerated plasmodial elements, red blood corpuscles and leucocytes. Peripheral syncytial elements are also seen in the stroma of the decidua capsularis which also contains many lymphocytes and leucocytes. x c. 550.

Fig. 10. Showing a capillary opening into the basal sinus at the point indicated by an arrow. Above the capillary is a strand of proliferating syncytium. x c. 550.
