Abstract

Pulmonary choriocarcinoma is a very rare tumor in men. Herrein, the case of a pulmonary choriocarcinoma in 39-year-old man, and whether it had a primary nature, is reported. He denied any prior medical illness, but was admitted to our hospital with a history of a cough, and progressive dyspnea and hemoptysis 2 and 1 week duration, respectively. Chest radiographs on admission revealed a huge lung mass, 10 cm in diameter, in the left upper lung field, with left pleural effusion. Although biopsies using several diagnostic methods for the pathological confirmation were attempted, the pathology was not confirmed. Finally, the patient died after 2 months of regression. An autopsy of the lung was then performed.
