Medication Summary

Prophylactic chemotherapy after evacuation of a hydatidiform mole is not routinely recommended. Only 20% of women with hydatidiform mole will develop malignant sequelae (ie, Gestational Trophoblastic Neoplasia). Prophylactic chemotherapy may be considered in patients who will not adhere to the required close follow-up.
