Maternal Serum Alpha-Fetoprotein and Detection of Hydatidiform Mole in Second Trimester of Pregnancy.
AbstractMaternal serum alpha-fetoprotein (MS-AFP) levels in 142 pregnant patients were studied between 14- 20 weeks of gestation. Association between age, parity and incidence was also studied. In high risk group, 4 subjects with complete hydatidiform mole had significantly low MS-AFP levels compared to the controls. The results also show on appreciable association between age and parity of these subjects with development of molar pregnancy subjects with development of molar pregnancy.
