Pregnancy with choriocarcinoma is a rare tumor. It is rare for neonates to survive the third trimester. This article reports the clinical data of a live fetal pregnancy with choriocarcinoma complicated by brain and lung metastases. The patient was admitted to the hospital for “menopause 28 weeks + 5 days, dizziness with nausea and vomiting 2 days.” After 5 hours of admission, the patient had sudden convulsions, urinary incontinence, and coma. A head computed tomography (CT) examination in the emergency department revealed a cerebral hemorrhage in the right occipital lobe and broke into the ventricular system with brain herniation. She was immediately transferred to the intensive care unit for the emergency cesarean section and intracerebral hematoma removal. A postoperative CT scan revealed that the tumor in the upper lobe of the right lung was considered lung cancer, with multiple metastases in both lungs. Postoperative pathology was metastatic choriocarcinoma tissue seen in the blood clot. Based on the pathological diagnosis of choriocarcinoma, a chemotherapy regimen was developed with 2 courses of EP regimen and 8 courses of combined EMA-CO chemotherapy regimen. The patients were followed up for 2 years and ultimately resolved.
