hydatidiform mole OR hydatiform mole (hydatic mole OR grape mole)
Explanation:
The most common form is "hydatidiform" -- by far (see Illustrated Health Encyclopedia OR ENCYCLOPÆDIA BRITANNICA).

Hydatidiform mole

Overview | Symptoms | Treatment | Prevention

Alternative names:

hydatid mole

Treatment

If spontaneous abortion does not occur and the diagnosis is confirmed, therapeutic abortion is performed by suction curettage. Following either case, serum HCG levels are monitored to assure they return to a normal, non-pregnant level. A hysterectomy may be an option for older women who do not desire future pregnancies.

Prognosis

More than 80% of hydatidiform moles are benign. Outcome after treatment is usually excellent. Close follow-up is essential. Highly effective means of contraception are recommended to avoid pregnancy for at least 1 year.

In 10 to 15% of cases, hydatidiform moles may develop into invasive moles. Invasive moles, however, may intrude so far into the uterine wall that hemorrhage or other complications develop.

In 2 to 3% of cases, hydatidiform moles may develop into choriocarcinoma, which is a malignant, rapidly- growing, and metastatic (spreading) form of cancer. Despite these factors, the rate of cure is high. Over 90% of women with malignant, non-spreading (nonmetastatic) disease are able to preserve reproductive abilities. In those with metastatic disease, remission remains at 75 to 85%.

Complications

Acute pulmonary (lung) insufficiency may develop after evacuation of the uterus in cases where uterine enlargement is greater than 16 weeks gestational size.

Call Your Health Care Provider If:

Call your health care provider/obstetrician if hydatidiform mole is suspected.

SEE:

A trophoblastic lesion characterized by large grapelike, edematous, avascular chorionic villi.

Gestational Trophoblastic Disease:
Complication of pregnancy or conception

Includes benign hydatidiform mole, invasive mole, and choriocarcinoma

All are associated with bilateral theca lutein cysts of ovary

Invasive Mole:
Hydatiform mole develops into invasive mole 20% time
Non- metastatic
Molar tissue focally invades myometrium forming hemorrhagic masses
May lead to uterine rupture or intraperitoneal hemorrhage
D&C may not yield any tissue, whereas ultrasound and MRI will be abnormal
