Placental mesenchymal dysplasia is a rare disorder mainly characterized by enlarged placenta. Patients on antenatal visits present with normal or slightly raised Beta-HCG, raised Alfa-fetoprotein and cystic structures on USG resembling a molar pregnancy. It has to be differentiated from molar pregnancies to avoid unnecessary termination of pregnancy. This condition is associated with IUGR or IUFD. Mostly the fetus are females. Due to lack of awareness of this condition it remains underreported. Here we present a case report of 20 years old female 37 week pregnant with IUGR with clinical suspicion of molar pregnancy gave birth to alive female fetus and on histopathological examination of placenta was diagnosed with PMD.
