Abstract: Choriocarcinoma is a rare and aggressive form of cancer that happens in female uterus or ovaries. The most common type, gestational choriocarcinoma is a type of gestational trophoblastic disease (GTD). GTD is a group of rare conditions that happens in pregnancy when tumors form from the placenta. The placenta provides oxygen and nutrients to a fetus through the umbilical cord. Choriocarcinoma is most common in people who have a molar pregnancy (when the sperm and egg join incorrectly and make a hydatidiform mole). It can also happen after an ectopic pregnancy, a pregnancy that ends in miscarriage or even after a full - term pregnancy resulting in a birth. Gestational choriocarcinoma occurs in 1 in 40, 000 pregnancies. of all forms of gestational choriocarcinoma, placental choriocarcinoma is the most rare. Maternal choriocarcinoma is usually diagnosed in symptomatic patients with metastases. The incidental finding of a choriocarcinoma confined to the placenta with no evidence of dissemination to the mother, or infant is the least common scenario.
