Gestational trophoblastic disease is characterized by an abnormal growth of these cells of the placenta after abnormal fertilization; which may present alterations of premalignant and malignant type. A study with a mixed approach, descriptive, cross-sectional observational type, allowed to reach the purpose of describing the incidence of molar pregnancy in patients attended in the General Hospital of Riobamba, during the period January 2013- March 2018. The universe of study was constituted by the clinical histories of the pregnant women atten-ded in the Service of Gynecology and Obstetrics of that institution of health mentioned above. 53 records of patients with an accurate diagnosis of molar pregnancy were chosen by an intentional or deliberate non-probabilistic sampling. 66% of the patients under study were in the range of 10 to 19.6 weeks at the time of being diagnosed with hydatidiform mole. There was a high incidence of pathology between the 16 to 25 years of ages with 64%. The most frequent symptomatology reported included vaginal bleeding and abdominal pain with a total of 92.45%. However, benign entities predominated with 81.13%. The main risk factor of suffering this pathology was the antecedent of previous abortions.
