#ExistInterpData>Flow Cytometry can be used to distinguish between partial and complete hydatidiform moles. Partial moles are usually triploid while complete moles are diploid or tetraploid. (Clinical Medicine: Pathology; 2008: 1; 61-7). Of the 35 cases of histologically apparent partial moles, no complication occurred in those that were triploid. However, 20 percent of those that were diploid had complications (persistence, metastasis). [Am J ObstetGynecol; 1987:157; 969-73].

||A thin section of each tissue submitted is stained with H&E. The DNA content is classified as diploid, triploid, tetraploid or aneuploid. The DNA index is the ratio of the DNA content of abnormal cells compared to normal cells.
