PARTIAL HYDATIDIFORM MOLE ALONG WITH TERM GESTATION AND ALIVE BABY
AbstractGestational trophoblastic disease consists of a broad spectrum of conditions ranging from an uncomplicated partial hydatidiform molar pregnancy to stage-IV choriocarinoma with cerebral metastases. We describe a partial molar change in the placenta that was associated with a normal female fetus that was delivered at term and is alive and healthy.
