Title: Choriocarcinoma mimicking chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension: A case report
Biography: Andris Skride
Choriocarcinoma of the pulmonary artery is rare but curable. The condition is characterized by unspecific symptoms and radiological findings, which can mimic pneumonia and tuberculosis in early stages and pulmonary embolism and chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension in later stages of disease, representing diagnostic challenges. It is important to identify unspecific respiratory symptoms in the presence of meno-metrorrhagia after pregnancy and/or childbirth, and to measure β-hCG levels.
