Re: Re: Easily missed when ectopic pregnancy is suspected ?

We read and appreciated these comments. Potential extragonadal non
gestational choriocarcinoma involving the lung should be excluded before
methotrexate therapy, when ectopic pregnancy is suspected. In this case
report, the CT scan merely confirmed the localized lung mass, without any
confusion, before surgery.
