RAMIREZ, Laura et al. Intracerebral hemorrhage as the first manifestation of a metastatic choriocarcinoma: case report. Acta Neurol Colomb. [online]. 2019, vol.35, n.2, pp.103-110. ISSN 0120-8748.  http://dx.doi.org/10.22379/24224022240.

Choriocarcinoma is an invasive, highly vascularized, rare gestational trophoblastic disease. It is potentially fatal without proper treatment and is characterized by malignant proliferation of trophoblastic tissue with a high rate of metastases.

We present the case of a young patient with intracerebral hemorrhage as the first manifestation of metasta-tic choriocarcinoma. We describe the clinical and imaging characteristics and review current literature, with emphasis on the most relevant details regarding the differential diagnosis of intracerebral hemorrhage atypical presentation and the most appropriate treatment.

Palavras-chave : Choriocarcinoma; Cerebral Hemorrhage; Metastasis; Gestational Trophoblastic Disease (MeSH).
