Abstract

Metastatic gestational choriocarcinoma not uncommonly affects the central nervous system. If possible, the initial management of these metastases is surgical excision prior to chemotherapy, since these lesions are haemorrhagic. We report a patient with choriocarcinoma metastatic to the brain in whom surgery was potentially hazardous. Treatment was successfully given with stereotactic radiosurgery followed by chemotherapy.
