Primary pulmonary choriocarcinoma is an extremely rare clinical entity. In contrast with gestational trophoblastic tumors that show an extreme sensitivity for chemotherapy, extragonadal choriocarcinomas are mostly unresponsive to surgical and chemotherapeutic treatment, and are associated with poor prognosis. The reason why nongestational choriocarcinomas behave so differentely from gestational tumors is unknown. In the present case we report a 30 year old young female patient with primary choriocarcinoma of lung localization, who was succesfully treated with surgical resection and multiple cycles of combination chemotherapy. During her recovery she was followed up by human chorionic gonadotropin titer measurement, and after one year close surveillance of β-hCG levels her disease achieved complete remission.
