The appropriate management of gynecological malignancies in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected patients is uncertain. Gestational trophoblastic disease is highly curable and occurs predominantly among young females. However, such patients are often immunocompromised and cytotoxic agents may further compromise immunity. This case report demonstrates the successful management of choriocarcinoma in a HIV-infected patient.
