Non gestational choriocarcinoma

Dr Jeremy Jones and Radswiki et al.

Non-gestational choriocarcinoma is choriocarcinoma occurring in the absence of a preceding gestation.  As opposed to a gestational choriocarcinoma, this is a much rarer situation.


In women they often tend to occur in ovary. Most ovarian non-gestational choriocarcinomas occur in mixed form with teratoma, endodermal sinus tumour, embryonal carcinoma or dysgerminoma components. Very rarely it can occur as a pure primary ovarian choriocarcinoma. In men in can occur as a testicular choriocarcinoma.
