Abstract

Gestational trophoblastic diseases comprise a spectrum of premalignant and malignant diseases, including hydatidiform mole (complete or partial), placental site trophoblastic tumor, choriocarcinoma and gestational trophoblastic neoplasia. Hydatidiform mole is the most common form of these (1). We report a case of 35-year-old women in her 5th para with the POA of 12 weeks presented with the features of thyrotoxicosis complicated with multiple episodes of SVT found to have molar pregnancy. She underwent medical cardioversion and thyroid suppressive treatment in order to stabilize and prevent perioperative complications. She underwent surgery and complete recovery was noted. Even though the definitive treatment is surgical its essential to consider the medical management first to stabilize the patient prior to the surgery.
