Abstract

Choriocarcinoma is an aggressive germ cell neoplasm most commonly arising in the uterus and is associated with gestation. Additional sites of origin include the gonads, retroperitoneum, mediastinum, and pineal gland. Rarely, extragonadal choriocarcinoma arises in parenchymal tissue. We present a case of metastatic primary gastric choriocarcinoma to lungs and liver with excellent early response to systemic chemotherapy.
