Cerebral metastatic choriocarcinoma in the People's Republic of China.
Thirty-four patients with cerebral metastases from choriocarcinoma were treated between 1964 and 1978 by the Department of Gynecology of the Tumor Hospital Chung Shan Medical College, Kwongchow, People's Republic of China. Disease in 20.5% (7 of 34 patients) is currently in remission (12 to 120 months). Treatment was primarily by chemotherapy and Chinese herbs, with adjunctive craniotomy in selected patients. Myelosuppression was the main side effect.
