The authors describe a case of a 35-year-old woman who showed elevation of BhCG 13 months after the complete regression of BhCG values following chemotherapy for an incomplete mole. This case outlines the necessity for careful monitoring of BhCG levels in low risk gestational trophoblastic diseases for a period of time longer than one year after achieving the first clinical remission.
