Gestational trophoblastic neoplasia (GTN) are rare tumours that constitute less than 1% of all gynecological malignancies. Invasive mole is a distinct subgroup of GTN, which follows approximately 10-15% of complete hydatiform moles. This is a case of invasive mole presenting as uterine perforation and massive haemoperitonium. The 35 year old parous woman presented with severe pallor, acute abdominal pain and hemoperitonium. She gave history of evacuation of a molar pregnancy four month back. Her serum B-HCG was elevated (80,000 IU/ml). Laprotomy revealed perforation through the uterine fundus with purple discolouration and grapes like vesicle with massive haemoperitonium. Patient was managed by hysterectomy and packed cell transfusion was given. Postoperative followup with B-HCG levels was done and chemotherapy (methotrexate and folinic acid) was given.
