Complete mole with a coexistent normal fetus

A case report

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

BACKGROUND: The incidence of a coexistent normal fetus is quoted in literature as 1 in 22,000 to 100,000 pregnancies and may be associated with multiple complications including persistent trophoblastic neoplasia. CASE: A 35-year-old woman with a complete mole and a coexistent normal fetus presented with multiple complications but was successfully managed until 30 weeks' gestation and gave birth to a healthy, normal female fetus. After delivery the mother recovered completely with no evidence of persistent trophoblastic disease. CONCLUSION: Although termination of pregnancy is an option chosen by most patients, continuing the pregnancy while optimizing the maternal condition by appropriate management of complications can result in a successful outcome.
