Gestational trophoblastic tumors are a spectrum of diseases spanning from a benign hydatidiform mole, through an invasive mole to a highly malignant form of choriocarcinoma. Choriocarcinoma is a rare, but the most malignant and aggressive neoplasm of all the gestational trophoblastic diseases. It metastasizes to the lungs, liver, and less frequently, the brain. Metastases to the kidneys are rare in the literature, and bilateral involvement is even rarer. It may mimic renal cell carcinoma. Here, we report a case of bilateral renal choriocarcinoma presenting six months after a history of hysterectomy for disorder uterine bleeding.
