Abstract

Following the removal of a hydatiform mole in a 34-year-old, 14-week pregnant patient, thyrotoxicosis and respiratory insufficiency attacks were twice unexpectedly repeated. The symptoms were resolved with the administration of plasmapheresis, antithyroid and beta-blocker drugs and non-invasive mechanical ventilation; however, she was again operated due to prolonged elevated beta-hCG.
