      Abstract

      A report is presented of a rare occurrence of a twin pregnancy, in which a well-developed fetus occurred in conjunction with a hydatidiform mole. Acute hydramnios necessitated termination of the pregnancy by hysterotomy.
      A five-year follow-up of the patient showed no evidence of the recurrence of the disease or of malignant transformation.
      This case is one of 71 cases encountered at the Woman's Division of St. Luke's Hospital over a period of 26 years.
