Hydatidiform mole co-existing with a normal fetus is very rare. We report a case of
a 36 year old woman Para 4+0 who presented with amenorrhoea of twenty four
weeks duration, vaginal bleeding , abdominal pain and pre-eclampsia.
Ultrasound examination revealed a hydatidiform mole coexisting with a normal
living fetus. The patient underwent a caesarean section at twenty eight weeks for
maternal distress due to unbearable abdominal pain. The baby died after seven
days. Post operatively she had an eclamptic fit and developed oliguria and
persistent trophoblastic disease which were all successfully treated.
