Primary Ovarian Non-gestational Choriocarcinoma in a Young Woman

Abstract

Primary ovarian choriocarcinoma is an extremely rare germ cell neoplasm, and the prognosis is poor. Especially, the diagnosis of primary ovarian nongestational chori-ocarcinoma can be reliably established in a girl or innocent virgin. We report a case of primary ovarian, nongestational, pure choriocarcinoma in a 16-year-old woman. She died within 1 year after diagnosis in spite of the treatment with surgery and combin-ation chemotherapy.
