chorioadenoma

 [ko″re-o-ad″ĕ-no´mah]
adenoma of the chorion.
chorioadenoma destru´ens a form of hydatidiform mole in which molar chorionic villi penetrate into the myometrium and may invade the parametrium. Hydropic villi may be transported to distant sites, most often the lungs, but they do not grow as metastases.

cho·ri·o·ad·e·no·ma des·'tru·ens

hydatidiform mole in which there is an unusual degree of invasion of the myometrium or its blood vessels, causing hemorrhage, necrosis, and occasionally rupture of the uterus or embolism of molar tissue to the lungs; there is marked proliferation of the trophoblast, but avascular villi may also be found.
Synonym(s): invasive mole
