Gestational ovarian choriocarcinoma: A case report


Hemalata Mahantappa, Suguna Belur, Ankita Agarwal

Ovarian choriocarcinoma is an extremely rare trophoblastic disease of either gestational or non-gestational origin. It can arise due to metastasis from uterine choriocarcinoma or from an ovarian ectopic pregnancy. Here we present a case of gestational ovarian choriocarcinoma in a 27-year-old female clinically diagnosed as ectopic ovarian pregnancy. Histopathologically, the tumor showed characteristic features of choriocarcinoma. The presence of corpus luteum adjacent to the tumor, high serum β-HCG levels and reproductive age of the patient favored the diagnosis of gestational choriocarcinoma.
