Ji Min Lee, Chi Heum Cho, Soon Do Cha, Sang Min Cho, Kun Young Kwon
Abstract
Pulmonary metastasis occurs frequently in patients with gestational choriocarcinoma and most of these patients achieve remission with chemotherapy alone. Thus, the indications for surgical intervention are limited, but in appropriately selected patients, resection of a chemotherapy-resistant lung lesion can be curative. We have experienced that pulmonary metastatic choriocarcinoma in a drug-resistant patient was cured by pulmonary resection. So we report this case with a brief review of literatures.
Key Words: Choriocarcinoma, Pulmonary metastasis, Pulmonary resection
