ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Molar Pregnancy (Gestational Trophoblastic Neoplasia)

History: 19-year-old G1 female presents for a routine dating ultrasound. She is 12 weeks 1 day by last menstrual period.

Findings: Classic “snowstorm” appearance on ultrasound examination - contents of uterus appear of heterogeneous echogenicity displaying both cystic and solid areas. Color flow doppler reveals mildly increased vascularity.

Ddx: - Gestational trophoblastic neoplasia (hydatidiform mole) - Retained products of conception (missed or incomplete abortion) - Hydropic degeneration of placenta - Previous exposure to tamoxifen (a selective estrogen receptor modulator) may result in endometrial cysts (no history of tamoxifen exposure in this patient)

Dxhow: Hydatidiform mole (complete mole) confirmed by surgical specimen post-evacuation of uterine contents by D&C.

Exam: Physical exam is unremarkable and consistent with early pregnancy. Quantitative beta-hCG = 94,000 mIU/ml.

No MeSH data available.


Ultrasound, transverse section through the uterine fundus, displays a heterogeneous mass, composed of solid and cystic areas within the endometrial cavity.
