Authors: Agniv Sarkar, Richi Khandelwal, Manoranjan Mahapatra, Jita Parija


Invasive mole is responsible for most cases of localized gestational trophoblastic neoplasia. Gestational trophoblastic disease describes a number of gynecologic tumors that originate in trophoblastic layer including hydatidiform mole (complete or partial), invasive mole, choriocarcinoma, placental site trophoblastic tumor and epithelioid trophoblastic tumor. Invasive mole may arise from any pregnancy event although in most cases is diagnosed after molar pregnancy. Overall cure rate in low-risk patients is nearly 100% and in high-risk patients 90%. In rare cases, molar tissue traverses thickness of myometrium and leads to perforation and acute abdomen and invasive mole infrequently metastasis. Management of patient with invasive mole having persistent bleeding has been discussed to highlight the importance of hysterectomy in such cases.
