A 34-year-old woman had a history of 3 miscarriages and presented with symptoms of an unproductive cough and rising serum beta-human chorionic gonadotropin (b-hCG) levels. There were no gynaecological symptoms. A diagnosis of Choriocarcinoma with pulmonary metastasis was made. In Pakistan, the incidence of Choriocarcinoma remains exceedingly rare, accounting for less than 0.3% of all gynaecologic tumours. Though rare, if managed appropriately, it has a reasonably good prognosis, as demonstrated by the outcome of the current case.
