Post-partum choriocarcinoma is a rare complication of pregnancy. We have analyzed a series of six consecutive patients presenting with choriocarcinoma after a fullterm non-molar pregnancy. The incidence was calculated to be 1 in 19,000 births. Five patients were managed at the Hamad Medical Corporation between 1991 and 2001. All presented with persistent primary or secondary post-partum hemorrhage. Treatment with chemotherapy was successful in all cases. Early diagnosis is important because this rare condition is potentially curable with appropriate chemotherapy.
