Incidenc of  molar pregnancy was 8.27 per thousand pregnancy. Sixty percent of the patients were multiparous  and eighty percent of low socio economic status . B positive blood group was prevalent (36%)  in this study.Sixty percent( 60%) of the patients presented with amenorrhoea and abnormal  vaginal bleeding.. Most of the patients (72%) were treated with suction evacuation and curettage.  Of them hemorrhage was the most common immediate complication (80%). Complication  like shock and perforation during evacuation was 14% and 4% respectively. Three patient  (6%) developed Persistent Gestational Trophoblastic Disease(GTD) and one (2%) patient  developed choriocarcinoma with lung metastasis and died. Thirty two (64%) patients attended  for regular follow up but ten patients (20%) had attended irregularly and eight patients (16%)  had dropped out .This study shows that follow up for molar pregnancy cases is not satisfactory  in a district medical college hospital.Further improvement can be done by increasing awareness  of the patients.
