Abstract

Choriocarcinoma is one of the most common malignancies associated with pregnancy. The characteristics of this malignancy include abnormal growth of the trophoblastic tissue, direct invasion of adjacent organs, and distant metastasis; however, it rarely presents extragonadally. Recently, we have experienced a case of primary hepatic choriocarcinoma in a middle-aged-man, which was characterized by a solitary large hepatic mass with central necrosis and hemorrhaging, as well as metastases to the lung and lymph nodes along the hepatoduodenal ligament. We report this case with a review of the literature.
