Abstract

A partial molar pregnancy of diploid karyotype coexisting with live term fetus is a rare entity. Most instances of partial mole are triploid and only a few cases of diploid partial moles with term delivery have been reported. Here, we report a case of partial mole concomitant with a 37-week live fetus. Postpartum karyotype of the placenta and the fetus revealed both as 46XX. Histological examination of the placenta showed a partial hydatidiform mole. We discuss the diagnosis based on presenting clinical picture and proper management of signs and symptoms of partial molar pregnancy coexisting with live term fetus and diploid karyotype, coupled with a review of the literature.
