Background: Primary choriocarcinoma of the cervix is a very rare entity. Case: A 35-year-old patient had been admitted to our hospital with vaginal bleeding for 7 months. A cervical mass measured 4 × 4 cm was palpated on the anterior surface of the cervix. Biopsy of the lesion demonstrated extensive necrosis and was in favor of squamous cell carcinoma. Patient was accepted as FIGO stage Ib1-2 and underwent type II hysterectomy with bilateral salpingoopherectomy and bilateral pelvic lymph node dissection was carried out. Post operative pathologic evaluation of the surgical specimen evinced that the case was primary cervical choriocarcinoma. Conclusion: Primary choriocarcinoma of the cervix should be considered in patients in their reproductive years with cervical lesion and negative cervical cytology. Beta-hCG assay and transvaginal color Doppler sonography are useful for early diagnosis.

Abstract: Primary gastric choriocarcinoma is a highly malignant and very rare tumor. A 44-year-old man was referred to our hospital, with a diagnosis of gastric adenocarcinoma made by histologic examination of the endoscopic biopsies in an other medical center. The patient underwent total gastrectomy and omentectomy. Histological examination of the gastrectomy specimen revealed gastric choriocarcinoma. Postoperative chemoteraphy was performed and the patient died of disease 4 months after operation.

Gestational trophoblastic neoplasia (GTN) is a hemorrhagic malignancy with highly rapid potential metastasis via hematogenous spreading. Renal metastasis is of infrequent occurrence. Among previous case reports of renal metastasis in GTN, this is the youngest woman presenting a large renal lesion concurrent with pulmonary and brain metastases. Disease remission had been achieved by treatment with combined chemotherapy and whole brain radiation, although acute myeloblastic leukemia (AML) developed later.

We report the case of a patient of 30 years with primary choriocarcinoma of the ovary. This patient referred for abdomino-pelvic mass suspected clinically and sonographically. Exploratory laparotomy was performed with the presence of two latero-uterine mass adherents to the highly vascularised uterus and difficult to resects deep plane with a mass left hepatic bleeding. A biopsy of both masses was performed and histological examination with immunehistochemical study returned for a primary ovarian non-gestational choriocarcinoma and the patient received 4 cycles of chemotherapy after hepatic artery embolization with good clinical, biological and radiological evaluation.

Abstract: a case is presented of a 36 year-old woman, with metastatic lung choriocarcinoma with atypical clinical and radiological presentation. the finding of pulmonary hypertension indicated the possibility of pulmonary thromboembolism, still, the definitive diagnosis and cause of pulmonary embolism were done in the autopsy. the authors discuss the manners of choriocarcinoma metastasis presentation, its repercussions and the latent period which may exist until it presents evidence of neoplasm.

Archivos Espa?oles de Urología (Ed. impresa) , 2007, DOI: 10.4321/S0004-06142007000300010
Abstract: objective: pure testicular choriocarcinoma is a relatively infrequent neoplasia with an ominous prognosis. methods: we report the necropsy study of a 21-year-old male patient with generalized metastases of a primary pure testicular choriocarcinoma. results: the aggressiveness of this neoplasia is demonstrated by extensive tumor dissemination in early stages, in which testicular clinical manifestations are often absent. conclusions: in front of any choriocarcinoma it is imperative to perform an extensive sampling of the lesion with the aim to detect possible foci of germ cell neoplasia which constitute a mixed pattern.

Revista Espa?ola de Enfermedades Digestivas , 2004, DOI: 10.4321/S1130-01082004000100010
Abstract: metastatic choriocarcinoma is a rare nonseminomatous germ-cell tumor with a characteristic hemorrhagic tendency due to its trophoblastic origin. gastrointestinal tube involvement is present in less than 5% of cases, and location or therapy of these lesions can be achieved by endoscopy, angiography or surgery. despite its being a highly curable malignant disease, the ocurrence of gastrointestinal bleeding worsens prognosis. we report a case of metastatic choriocarcinoma which manifested as melaena and was diagnosed by the presence of metastatic lesions in the stomach and right bowel on endoscopy.

Abstract: Choriocarcinoma is a highly malignant tumour which originates from the developing trophoblastic tissue, most commonly following molar pregnancy. It is a potentially fatal disease, but current management protocols have changed the prognosis as highly favourable. The aim of the study was to analyze the ways of establishing the diagnosis, methods and results of treatment of choriocarcinoma in our institute. The study was conducted as a retrospective analysis of the eight-year period, from 2000 to 2008. The obtained data were collected from medical charts with choriocarcinoma treated in our institute. In the eight-year period, eight cases of choriocarcinoma were registered. In one (12.5%) case choriocarcinoma developed after molar pregnancy, whereas in six (75%) cases the antecedent pregnancy resulted in a spontaneous abortion. In one patient the diagnosis was made after hysterectomy. Particular chemotherapeutic protocol was introduced to each patient. All patient survived. Prognosis of gestational choriocarcinoma is favourable provided the appropriate therapy is administered early in the course of disease. Provision of free medical care should be considered for these patients to save their lives.

Abstract: Pure ovarian choriocarcinoma can be gestational or nongestational in origin. Nongestational choriocarcinoma of the ovary is extremely rare, and its diagnosis is very difficult during the reproductive years. We present a case of a 33-year-old woman diagnosed with pure nongestational ovarian choriocarcinoma. Following surgery, multiple courses of a chemotherapy regimen of etoposide, methotrexate, and actinomycin-D (EMA) were effective.
