There is no evidence to show that hydatidiform mole associated with large ovarian cystomata is more likely to be followed by serious complications such as chorion epithelioma than moles unassociated with clinical enlargement of the ovaries. Three cases are reported, the first in which a serious error of judgment was committed. The second and third clearly demonstrate that large luteal cystomata will undergo complete spontaneous resolution in a comparitively short space of time and can therefore be safely left alone.
