An abnormal pregnancy with a cystic growth of the placenta hydatidiform mole develops from the trophoblastic tissue of the early embryonic stage of development. In a molar pregnancy, all of the usual signs are highly exaggerated. The growth of the uterus is unusually rapid, morning sickness is often severe and there are high levels of chorionic gonadotropin as well as high blood pressure. In such cases the uterus must be evacuated to prevent the mole from developing into choriocarcinoma. Also known as gestational trophoblastic disease or GTN.
An abnormally formed placenta that results in miscarriage. Also called a hydatidiform mole. Women with molar pregnancies will need blood work after they miscarry to make sure that all the abnormal placental tissue has been evacuated.
an abnormality during pregnancy; chorionic villi around an aborting embryo degenerate and form clusters of fluid-filled sacs

a very rare condition, known medically as a 'Hydatidiform Mole'
a very rare type of pregnancy where an abnormal mass forms inside the uterus after the egg is fertilized
Growth of abnormal placental tissue in the uterus. Also called gestational trophoblastic disease (GTD).
The result of a genetic mismatch that produces an abnormal growth instead of a fetus.
(Trophoblastic Disease) -- the fertilization of an egg without a nucleus. A baby (usually anomalous) may or may not be present, and the placenta develops into a nonmalignant tumor called a hydatidiform mole. The layer of cells that line the gestational sac and normally give rise to the chorionic villi convert into a mass of clear, tapioca-like vesicles instead of into a healthy placenta. The fertilized egg then deteriorates. Probably caused by a chromosomal abnormality in the fertilized egg. A continuous or intermittent brownish discharge is the prime symptom. Treated by a D&C and sometimes methotrexate.
A condition in women of childbearing age in which grape-like cysts grow in the uterus after conception (fertilization of an egg by a sperm). Molar pregnancies may change into a type of cancer called choriocarcinoma or gestational trophoblastic tumor. Also called hydatidiform mole.
A rare mass or growth that may form inside the uterus at the beginning of a pregnancy. See hydatidiform mole. atural childbirth: A method of childbirth in which medications and medical interventions are minimized, and the mother uses relaxation and breathing techniques to control pain and ease delivery.
A rare cancer in women of childbearing age in which cancer cells grow in the tissues that are formed in the uterus after conception. Also called gestational trophoblastic disease, gestational trophoblastic neoplasia, gestational trophoblastic tumor, or choriocarcinoma.
( gestational trophoblastic disease) An abnormal condition of pregnancy characterized by the growth of cysts on the placenta and bleeding during early and middle pregnancy.
An abnormal pregnancy in which there is no fetus, only an abnormal mass growth.
