Abstract

There are, overall, about 200 cases of twin pregnancy with complete hydatidiform mole and a coexisting fetus documented to date in the literature and it has been speculated that recent widespread use of ovulation induction in the treatment of infertility may increase the incidence of twin pregnancy with complete hydatidiform mole and a coexisting fetus. The majority of pregnancies are usually terminated, but in some cases, the patients might want to maintain pregnancy despite of the risks. We describe a case of twin pregnancy with complete hydatidiform mole and a coexisting fetus that was delivered 35 weeks, which we present together with a brief review of the literature.
