Excerpt
Choriocarcinoma, a rare neoplasm in western countries, occurs with strikingly high frequency in the Far East. It is a very malignant neoplasm and usuallv. orie-i nates from the chorionic e~itheliumo f the fetus; it is believed to develop in the mothcr some time after the termination of gestation. Alternatively, it may develop from the germinal epithehum of the gonads of either sex or, rarely, from embryonal rest cells in extragonadal sites. Choriocarcinomas of different ori-ei ns are similar in their histological and clinical behavionr. They are rapidly metastasizing tumours and patients with metastasis, if untreated, usually die within a year. Only gestational choriocarcinoma responds to chemotherapy (9) and has been known as the fust chemotherapeutically curable human cancer. Very rarely, spontaneous regression occurs even after they are labelled as fatally malignant (24).
