Coexistence of a viable fetus with a hydatidiform mole is a rare condition and the diagnosis is very important because of the risk of developing severe complications in pregnancy. The management of these pregnancies is optional, although accurate and great care is required to find early signs of maternal or fetal complications.Hereby we report a case of dizygotic twin pregnancy with a complete mole and coexisting fetus that resulted in a live neonate.
