Recurrent Hydatidiform Molar Pregnancy: A Case Report of 5 Consecutive Molar Pregnancies Complicated by HELLP and DIC, and Review of Literature
Abstract: Hydatidiform mole is the most common form of gestational trophoblastic disease. Recurrent molar pregnancies are extremely rare. Herein, we reported the case of a patient with five consecutive molars; four of them were complete mole, and one was partial mole complicated by HELLP syndrome and DIC.
Keywords: HELLP, DIC, BHCG, GA, CVS, AST, ALT, IVF, PGD
