ObGyn H.Mole and Risk of Choriocarcinoma

Hi all,

As per Goljan 3rd edition, risk of chorioCA with complete mole is 20% and with partial mole , its 2 -3%

FA and KAPLAN say its 2% for complete and rare for partial!!

I am confused

Which one is right?

UpToDate echoes the numbers you found in FA/Kaplan.

3% for complete
0.1% for partial
