A case is presented of a twin gestation comprising a grossly normal fetus and placenta coexisting with a separate hydatidiform mole which ended in an abortion. Both developed following ovulation induction with human menopausal gonadotrophin and human chorionic gonadotrophin. The literature is reviewed and clinical aspects of this rare entity are discussed.
