Background: Gestational trophoblastic disease (GTD) is the consequence of a genetic alteration that happens during fecundation. Is the term used to describe malignant lesions that originates in the chorionic villi an extra villous trophoblast. Molar pregnancies can be subdivided into complete (CM) and partial moles (PM) based on genetic and histopathological features. Case report: 23-year old patient, who presents an ultrasound which revealed a singleton pregnancy with no fetal structural abnormalities, and fetal biometry consistent with gestational age (16w + 6d). There was a placenta with focal areas of enlargement associated with numerous lucent cyst, and normal amniotic fluid, compatible with partial molar pregnancy in association with a normal fetus. After risks of subsequent fetal and maternal complications were explained to the patient and her family, it was elected to continue with her pregnancy; patient went under cesarean delivery at 31w 3d because low amniotic fluid levels (oligohydramnios) and abnormal fetal well-being tests.
