Retained products of conception (POC) complicate pregnancy frequently. The rate of RPOC after early pregnancy loss is approximately 4%. The clinical presentations of retained products of conception mimic those of gestational trophoblastic disease. Accurate differentiation is difficult based on clinical history and physical examination alone which leads to management dilemma. The distinction between these two entities is extremely important as the two are treated with different approach. Herein, we discuss a case of infected & degenerated retained products of conception which was initially misdiagnosed as trophoblastic disease in a 25-year-old woman as after dilatation and curettage for miscarriage.
