Twin Gestation Consisting of Hydatidiform Mole and a Live Fetus: A Case Report
AbstractTwin gestation consisting of hydatidiform mole and a live fetus is a rare entity. A 22-year-old gravida 2 para 1+0, 1 alive patient presented with 14 weeks amenorrhoea and vaginal bleeding. Ultrasonography revealed hydatidiform mole and a viable fetus. She had suction curettage at 16weeks gestational age because of heavy vaginal bleeding. Histology confirmed benign hydatidiform mole. Urinary HCG level declined progressively and was negative by 4 weeks post-evacuation. Eight months after, she was 20 weeks gravid. She had uneventful pregnancy, labour and delivery of a baby boy. The baby (now a year old) and the mother remain well.
