Placental Site Trophoblastic Tumor Summary

Description: An uncommon variant of CHORIOCARCINOMA. It is composed almost entirely of mononuclear cytotrophoblasts (TROPHOBLASTS). Because its secretion of hCG (CHORIONIC GONADOTROPIN) is low, a large tumor may develop before the hCG can be detected.

Also Known As: Trophoblastic Tumor, Placental Site; Trophoblastic Tumor, Placental; Placental Trophoblastic Tumor; Placental Trophoblastic Tumors; Placental-Site Trophoblastic Tumors Show All >>
