Abstract

We evaluated the accuracy of the ultrasound signs suggestive of complete hydatidiform mole (CHM) and partial hydatidiform mole (PHM) in a cohort of women with histologically confirmed hydatidiform mole (HM) who presented with early pregnancy failure, including 103 CHM and 95 PHM for which ultrasound images were available. The accuracy of the differential diagnosis was significantly (p < 0.001) greater during secondary examination of ultrasound images compared with the original primary ultrasound examination. The interobserver agreement analysis indicated only a fair to moderate agreement between the two examinations (kappa value 0.41; 95% CI 0.29–0.53). Most HM present as early pregnancy failure and identification of early ultrasound signs can improve the differential diagnosis between CHM and PHM.
