Gestational trophoblastic diseases include a spectrum of interrelated tumours, including complete and partial hydatidiform mole. In addition, invasive mole, choriocarcinoma, and placental site trophoblastic tumour are also gestational trophoblastic diseases but are termed gestational trophoblastic neoplasias. Unusually, gestational trophoblastic neoplasias can be cured, even in the presence of widespread metastases. The chapter discusses risk factors, clinical features, management, follow-up, and prognosis.
