Choriocarcinoma of the bladder was diagnosed in a 54-year-old woman presenting with macroscopic hematuria 17 years following evacuation of a molar pregnancy. The patient was treated by cystoscopic transurethral tumor resection followed by three courses of triple-agent chemotherapy and total abdominal hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy. Six months later a gradual rise in beta-human chorionic gonadotropin levels led to the diagnosis of recurrent bladder tumor at the site of the previous tumor. The patient underwent a conservative partial cystectomy, and 12 months postoperatively there was no evidence of disease. It is unclear whether the patient developed a primary urinary bladder choriocarcinoma or late metastatic disease from the previous molar pregnancy.
