Abstract: 

Molar pregnancy is a disorder of chorionic villi including trophoblastic proliferation and villous stromal swelling. One case of molar pregnancy is reported per 1500-2000 pregnancies in USA. Studies showed that the incidence of hydatiform mole in Asia, Africa and Central America is more than USA, Europe and Australia (1). Hydatiform mole is classified to partial (PM) and complete (CM) mole regards to the histopathology examination (2). Suspicion arises when an ultrasound reports a fetal pole associated with an abnormal placenta. (3) Twin pregnancy of a complete hydatiform mole and a natural fetus is a rare condition and accounts for one in 22000 to one in 100000 of pregnancies. Its importance is regards to the significant increased risk of pregnancy complications like preterm labor; making decision about the true management is much harder due to the probable viable fetus(3, 4).
