Introduction: Gestational trophoblastic neoplasms (GTN) are malignant lesions that arise from placental
villous and extra-villous trophoblast. GTN occurs in 1:40,000 pregnancies and is more common in Asia than
in Europe or North America especially in Bali. Four clinicopathologic conditions make up this entity: 1)
invasive mole (IM) that follows either a complete (CHM) or partial hydatidiform mole (PHM), 2)
choriocarcinoma (CCA), 3) placental site trophoblastic tumor (PSTT) and 4) epithelioid trophoblastic tumor
(ETT). The purpose of this study aims to determine the characteristics and clinicopathology of patients with
GTN in Sanglah Hospital, Bali. Methods: This was a retrospective cross-sectional study by looking at
