Hard to answer: Ultrasound features – Partial moles are often indistinguishable from complete moles on ultrasound. However, demonstration of fetal parts favors the diagnosis of a partial mole. Histological analysis of the aborted tissue is usually helpful in confirming the definite diagnosis. Your case demonstrates significantly enlarged sac which may happen with any molar pregnancy.
