Epithelioid trophoblastic tumor (ETT) is an extremely rare type of gestational trophoblastic disease that can be hard to diagnose. ETT used to be called atypical choriocarcinoma because the cells look like choriocarcinoma cells under the microscope, but it is now thought to be a separate disease.

Whether you or someone you love has cancer, knowing what to expect can help you cope. From basic information about cancer and its causes to in-depth information on specific cancer types – including risk factors, early detection, diagnosis, and treatment options – you’ll find it here.

This PDQ cancer information summary for health professionals provides comprehensive, peer-reviewed, evidence-based information about the treatment of gestational trophoblastic disease.

It is intended as a resource to inform and assist clinicians who care for cancer : PDQ Adult Treatment Editorial Board. Gestational trophoblastic disease is the name for a group of rare tumors that are usually related to pregnancy.

Learn about the types of tumors, symptoms they cause, and how they’re treated. Gestational trophoblastic disease (GTD) is a group of rare tumors that begin during a pregnancy. These tumors start in the cells that would normally develop into the placenta, which connects the fetus to the uterus.

Gestational trophoblastic neoplasia (GTN) – Gestational neoplasms include: choriocarcinoma, placental site trophoblastic tumor, epithelioid trophoblastic tumor, and invasive mole.

In the absence of tissue for a definitive histopathologic diagnosis, disease diagnosed as a result of persistent elevation of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG. Gestational trophoblastic disease (GTD) is a general term for rare tumors that form from the tissues surrounding fertilized egg.

GTD is often found early and usually cured. Hydatidiform mole (HM) is the most common type of GTD. Explore the links on this page to learn more about GTD treatment and clinical trials.

Gestational trophoblastic disease (GTD) results from the abnormal proliferation of trophoblastic tissue and encompasses a wide spectrum of diseases, including: Women older than 40 years and younger than 20 years may be at higher risk.

The presentation is variable: A common characteristic of all gestational trophoblastic disease is an abnormal. In this volume Dr Hui has brought together a comprehensive overview of gestational trophoblastic disease that includes all the currently recognized entities: complete and partial hydatidiform moles, placental site trophoblastic tumor, epithelioid trophoblastic tumor, gestational choriocarcinoma, persistent gestational trophoblastic neoplasia, placental site nodule and Manufacturer: Humana.

Gestational trophoblastic disease is a relatively rare gynecologic condition resulting from an abnormal fertilization event and usually noted for an elevated human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) level.

It is composed of both benign (complete and partial hydatidiform mole) and malignant (invasive mole, choriocarcinoma, placental site trophoblastic Cited by: ON THIS PAGE: You will find basic information about this group of diseases and the parts of the body they may affect.

This is the first page of ’s Guide to Gestational Trophoblastic Disease. Use the menu to see other pages. Think of that. Gestational trophoblastic disease is a tumor originating from the trophoblast, which surrounds the blastocyst and develops into the chorion and amnion (see page Placenta and embryo at about 11 4⁄7 wk gestation).

This disease can occur during or after an intrauterine or ectopic pregnancy. If the disease occurs during a pregnancy, spontaneous.

Gestational trophoblastic disease (GTD) is a group of rare diseases in which abnormal trophoblast cells grow inside the uterus after conception. Hydatidiform mole (HM) is the most common type of GTD.

Age and a previous molar pregnancy affect the risk of GTD. Signs of GTD include abnormal vaginal bleeding and a uterus that is larger than normal. “Trophoblastic” relates to the precursor tissue of the placenta, which is responsible for getting the small embryonic tissue implanted into the uterine wall.

These are the same cells that later can turn aggressive and cancerous as in the case of choriocarcinoma. There is a spectrum of gestational trophoblastic disease. Gestational trophoblastic disease (GTD) is a condition of uncertain etiology, comprised of a hydatidiform mole (complete and partial), invasive mole, choriocarcinoma, epithelioid trophoblastic.

Causes of Gestational Trophoblastic Disease. The most common types of gestational trophoblastic disease occur when a sperm cell fertilizes an empty egg cell or when two sperm cells fertilize a normal egg cell. Your risk is higher based on your: Age: Gestational trophoblastic disease occurs in women of childbearing age.

History of molar pregnancy. Introduction. Gestational trophoblastic disease (GTD) is a spectrum of disorders arising from abnormal proliferation of the trophoblastic epithelium of the placenta. 1 There are several histologically distinct types of GTD that range from premalignant, complete, and partial hydatidiform moles (HMs), to malignant diseases, also known as gestational trophoblastic Author: Jaclyn M.

Sometimes, women with GTD do not have any of these changes. Or, the cause of a symptom may be a different medical condition that is not a .Gestational trophoblastic disease (GTD) comprises a group of interrelated diseases that includes complete and partial molar pregnancy, invasive mole, placental site trophoblastic tumor (PSTT), and choriocarcinoma, which have varying propensities for invasion and spread.

Gestational trophoblastic tumors (GTTs) are one of the rare human malignancies that are highly curable, Cited by: Gestational trophoblastic disease is a rare but often highly treatable cancer. Management of gestational trophoblastic disease (GTD)—especially when a GTD tumor has invaded the wall of the uterus or spread beyond the uterus—is a highly .
