Bunch of grapes sign

Dr Ian Bickle and Dr Andrew Dixon et al.

Bunch-of-grapes sign refers to the ultrasound appearance of multiple cystic spaces within the uterus as the result of hydropic swelling of trophoblastic villi within a hydatidiform mole.

This sign is also described in bronchiectasis where on plain radiograph, the dilated bronchi in approximation appear as a bunch-of-grapes.

The same term is used to described the appearances of an intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm (IPMN).
