Shehla Baqai, Asma Ansari, Rabia Imran

Abstract

Gestational trophoblastic neoplasia (GTN) is an uncommon complication of pregnancy which can follow any gestational event, molar pregnancy, normal pregnancy, miscarriage or even ectopic pregnancy. Its incidence is high in the region of South East Asia. The curability of GTD is a milestone of success in the history of medicine however we still face challenges in diagnosis & treatment due to myriad of its clinical presentations. The case under discussion is of a patient who presented with unusual symptoms of GTD which posed a diagnostic dilemma but was effectively managed in a tertiary care setting conserving her future fertility and quality of life.

Keywords : Choriocarcinoma, Gestational trophoblastic neoplasia, Molar pregnancy.
