Abstract

Background and Aim: Gestational trophoblastic disease consists of a wide range of tumors related to the uterus, including complete and incomplete hydatidiform mole, placental trophoblastic tumor, and choriocarcinoma, which have different tendencies to local invasion and metastasis. In this study, we report a case of twin pregnancy with one fetus and a concomitant mole in a 40-year-old woman. Case report: A 40-year-old woman at 17-week of pregnancy referred with complaints of shortness of breath, headache and high blood pressure. Fetal heart rate was 110. According to the ultrasound of the fetus, the size of the placenta was much larger than normal and had cystic areas. The patient was diagnosed as a case of twin pregnancy with one fetus and a concomitant mole. Emergency hysterotomy was performed. The patient was discharged from the hospital after one week in good general condition and recommended to check weekly βHCG titer test and control blood pressure. conclusion: Molar pregnancy is diagnosed by abdominal ultrasound and serum βHCG measurement. Considering pregnancy complications such as gestational hypertension and metabolic disorders such as hyperthyroidism and bleeding which can increase after such pregnancies, early diagnosis and treatment are essential to reducing maternal mortality. In addition, after termination of such pregnancies, examination of the patients for early detection of trophoblastic tumors is very important. © 2018 the Author (s).
