A 27 yr old pregnant woman† presented to the department of Radiodiagnosis of Jawaharlal Institute of Postgraduate Medical Education and Research (JIPMER), Puducherry, India, in May 2018 for routine second trimester antenatal ultrasound scan. She was asymptomatic and gestational age according to her last menstrual period was 19 wk two days at presentation.

B-mode ultrasonography revealed a live intrauterine foetus of gestational age 16 wk zero day with no gross anomalies with placenta located anteriorly [Figure 1]a. There was another intrauterine amniotic sac which contained a heterogeneous isoechoic mass with multiple cystic areas along the posterior aspect of the uterine cavity [Figure 1] and [Figure 2]. Colour Doppler imaging showed mild internal vascularity. The possibility of dichorionic diamniotic twin pregnancy with complete hydatidiform mole of one sac and live foetus in the other sac was suggested. Due to high morbidity associated with continuation of pregnancy, treatment strategy is challenging. In view of high beta-human chorionic gonadotropin (2×105 mIU/ml) and gestational age being 20 wk, pregnancy was terminated. Histopathology confirmed complete hydatidiform mole. There was no post-procedural complication and the patient recovered completely on follow up after six weeks.{Figure 1}{Figure 2}
