Objective: Familial recurrent hydatidiform mole is an exceedingly rare clinical condition. Affected women are predisposed to molar pregnancies of diploid, biparental origin rather than androgenetic origin. At present, NLRP7 and KHDC3L (C6or (f) over bar 221) are the only genes known to be associated with familial recurrent hydatidiform mole. This study investigated the genetic dispositions in two large Turkish families with recurring molar conceptuses.
