Abstract

A case study and review of the literature of 2 uncommon obstetric events associated with each other is presented. The diagnosis, treatment, and evaluation of a case of nephrotic syndrome due to preeclamptic nephropathy in a hydatidiform mole and coexistent fetus is presented. Cytogenic studies and appropriate follow-up therapy are discussed. The complete remission of renal and hypertensive complications with evacuation of the pregnancy and lack of malignant transformation is stressed and is found to be characteristic of “partial” mole.
