Gestational trophoblastic disease consists of a broad spectrum of conditions ranging from an uncomplicated partial hydatidiform molar pregnancy to choriocarcinoma . Incidence of hydatidiform mole with a co-existent live fetus varies between 0.005 to 0.01% of all the pregnacies. We report a case of partial molar pregnancy of full term with IUGR (Intra uterine growth retardation) with IUFD (Intra uterine fetal death). The hcG levels were elevated, USG revealed molar changes. She delivered a dead male baby which was morphologically normal, there was a single large placenta exhibiting changes of partial hydatidiform mole.
