cellular anaplasia in the former and formation of abnormal villi in the latter
1. Invasive mole is called as Chorioadenoma destruens.
2. All cases follow molar pregnancy. Approximately 15% are associated with or precede invasive mole.
3. Pathological diagnosis is rarely made as most cases are treated medically without hysterectomy.
4. Tumor marker is HCG. The tumor invades the myometrium and disseminated into blood vessels leading to metastasis in vagina , lungs , brain.
5. The treatment is primarily chemotherapy. The differentiating feature is presence of abnormal villi in invasive mole while cellular anaplasia and absent villi is the hallmark of choriocarcinomA.
