Gestational trophoblastic diseases include complete and partial molar pregnancy, invasive mole, placental site trophoblastic tumor, and choriocarcinoma. Gestational choriocarcinoma is one of the most malignant form of a group of tumors. Although choriocarcinoma has a very high propensity to metastasize to various sites including brain it also has a very high cure rate. Our study represents the case of choriocarcinoma developed after primary invasive mole which was treated successfully with combined surgical and medical management. We now present a course of gestational trophoblastic disease transforming from benign to a malignant condition in due course of management. We are presenting a case of a 26-year-old female who came to us with molar pregnancy which turned out be invasive mole on histopathological examination and converted into choriocarcinoma in due course of treatment even after methotrexate chemotherapy.
