Gestational Trophoblastic Disease (GTD) is a spectrum of tumours with a wide range of biologic behaviour and potential for metastases, which were often fatal in the past. However, with better understanding of patho-physiology in the last few years, most women can now be cured. A Hydatidiform Mole (or Molar Pregnancy) is a benign Gestational Trophoblastic Disease that originates from the placenta. Treatment consists of vacuum evacuation but rarely hysterectomy may be required. Anaesthetic management is often complicated by the associated derangements.
