Pitfalls in the diagnosis of complete hydatidiform mole with coexistent live fetus
Abstract:Complete hydatidiform mole with coexisting live fetus is rare, causing specific difficulties in diagnosis and management. These aspects are illustrated in 2 cases that presented with antepartum haemorrhage. Fetal heart sounds and body parts or uncertainty over the duration of amenorrhoea may delay early diagnosis in the absence of ultrasonography.
