Abstract

Twin gestations consisting of a complete hydatidiform mole and coexisting fetus are rare and associated with an increased risk of persistent gestational trophoblastic tumor. Data were abstracted from 25 well-documented cases from the literature to which we added an additional case. Cases were then separated according to whether the pregnancy was evacuated before fetal viability (19 cases) or resulted in a surviving infant (7 cases). The previable and viable groups did not differ with respect to mean age, gravidity, parity, presenting symptoms, accuracy of sonographic diagnosis in identifying the molar component, uterine size at evacuation, or the presence of preeclampsia and theca lutein cysts. Statistically significant differences (P
