Abstract

BACKGROUND: Coexistence of complete mole and a live fetus is uncommon (1:22,000–100,000), more so with euploidy. CASE: We present a case of a molar pregnancy with a euploid fetus who had close fetal evaluation for second trimester bleeding. The patient presented at 29 weeks’ gestation with decreased fetal movements, a result of fetomaternal hemorrhage. She underwent emergency cesarean section and delivered a live infant. By close followup and a multidisciplinary approach, the appropriate diagnosis and a favorable outcome were achieved. Both mother and the child at 5 years of age are doing well. CONCLUSION: Detailed anatomic and molecular studies demonstrated a complete mole resulting from confined placental mosaicism, with molar tissue showing a single paternal allele at 8/8 informative loci, all shared with the fetus, thus this coexistent molar pregnancy was not that of a separate conceptus.
