Trophoblastic disease is usually related to pregnancy. Since the advent of modern chemotherapy, trophoblastic tumour has become one of the most curable malignancies. Trophoblastic disease can develop independently of gestation, but this is very rare.

They demonstrated chemoresistance to the different chemotherapy regimens and died from advanced metastatic disease.
