This article reviews a rare case of partial placental molar pregnancy resulting in a healthy newborn. A woman was admitted to the Department of Obstetric Gynecology at Dubai Hospital in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) where she subsequently gave birth to a healthy baby. In this multiparous patient, recurrent partial molar pregnancy was identified at 13 weeks by ultrasonography, which showed focal placental changes. However, the patient refused medical intervention and was kept under observation until 36 weeks, when a baby girl with a normal karyotype was born by normal vaginal delivery. There were no maternal complications. Partial molar pregnancy resulting in a live and healthy baby is rare and usually associated with numerous maternal complications, which were not present in this case. Complete evaluation of the placental tissue is important in cases where a live and healthy baby is delivered because molar changes may be focal and, therefore, cause unpredicted antenatal problems for the mother.
