Primary pure choriocarcinoma of the ovary in reproductive ages: a case report
Choriocarcinoma is an aggressive tumor with cyto- and syncytiotrophoblastic cells. It arises gestationally or nongestationally. Nongestational choriocarcinoma of the ovary can be pure or mixed with other germ cell tumors. Pure type is less frequent than mixed type and the diagnosis of nongestational choriocarcinoma of the ovary is very difficult in the reproductive period. A case of a 20-year-old woman with pure choriocarcinoma of the ovary is presented with a review of the literature and discussion of its origin.
