DURON GONZALEZ, Rodrigo  and  BOLANOS MORERA, Pamela. Gestational trophoblastic disease. Med. leg. Costa Rica [online]. 2018, vol.35, n.1, pp.30-43. ISSN 2215-5287.

The gestational trophoblastic disease englobes a set of neoplastic pathologies and pathologies with malignant potential, which can be acquired after gestation. Even though these tumors include less than 1% of gynecological tumors, they represent a threat to the life of women in reproductive age. It is important that physicians understand its etiology, natural evolution and control. If it is diagnosed on time and treated appropriately according to its risk and prognosis criteria, there’s a high healing potential including the ability of preserving reproductive function.

Keywords : Gestational Trophoblastic Disease; Gestational Trophoblastic Neoplasia; Hidatidiform mole; Trofoblastic Tumors.
