gestational trophoblastic disease

(redirected from Gestational trophoblastic diseases)

hy·da·tid·i·form mole

, hydatid mole [MIM*231090]
a vesicular or polycystic mass resulting from the proliferation of the trophoblast, with hydropic degeneration and avascularity of the chorionic villi; the abnormal tissue typically results from expression of paternally derived chromosomes and a loss of maternal chromosomes.

gestational trophoblastic disease

A generic term for a group of pregnancy-related disorders that arise from the trophoblast and clinically range from banal (e.g., hydatidiform mole) to aggressively malignant (e.g., choriocarcinoma).

Gestational trophoblastic disease
Hydatidiform mole
• Complete mole
• Partial mole
• Invasive mole
Placental site trophoblastic tumour
Epithelioid trophoblastic tumour

Gestational trophoblastic disease

A rare, aggressive, malignant, often metastatic (spreading to other organs) cancer in women of childbearing age in which cancer cells grow in the tissues that are formed in the uterus after conception
