Abstract

Choriocarcinoma is a gestational trophoblastic tumour with a high metastatic potential but presentation with gastrointestinal haemorrhage due to jejunal mucosal metastasis is very rare. A 25-year-old Nepali woman presented with severe anaemia and massive gastrointestinal haemorrhage after normal pregnancy following evacuation of a hydatiform mole. During laparotomy, the patient was found to have extensive jejunal mucosal metastases.
