Abstract

A unique case of hemothorax caused by proven pleural involvement with benign gestational trophoblastic disease and anticoagulation is presented. The pulmonary manifestations of gestational trophoblastic disease are reviewed. It is stressed that these may be associated with histologically benign as well as frankly malignant disease, and that the clinician must be alert for them in managing all patients with known or suspected gestational trophoblastic disease.
