Abstract

Enhanced myometrial vascularity in colour Doppler during ultrasound scan is not an uncommon finding following first-trimester miscarriage. When it is persistent and associated with abnormal uterine bleeding or persistently elevated serum beta hCG, suspicion of a significant pathology such as gestational trophoblastic neoplasm and acquired uterine arterio-venous malformation should be raised. Encysted retained products of conception in myometrium is a rare complication following a miscarriage, which has a similar clinical presentation to enhanced myometrial vascularity, but often the diagnosis is difficult.
