A rare case of life-threatening invasive mole
A 23-year-old female with a known case of partial mole and under hCG follow up presented with acute abdominal pain and signs of hemoperitoneum. Emergency laparotomy revealed a molar pregnancy perforating through the uterine fundus, resulting in massive haemoperitoneum of 4 litres. Total abdominal hysterectomy was done. The serum β-hCG level regressed following hysterectomy.
