Molar pregnancy is characterized histologically by abnormalities of the chorionic villi that consist of trophoblastic proliferation and oedema of villous stroma. The incidence of hydatiform moles in India is 1 in 1000. The incidence of recurrence is 1 in 60 in a subsequent pregnancy and 1 in 65 in the third pregnancy after two molar pregnancies. The occurrence of hydatiform mole is related to a few risk factors such as smoking, increased paternal or maternal age, and previous history of abortions. Here we report a case of a 29 year old woman with history of four partial moles and two first trimester abortions and her management. The patient finally opted for adoption.
