Sreenivas Vemula, Shoiab Zeeshan, Sumalatha Kasturi, Madhavi P, Triveni B.

Epithelioid Trophoblastic Tumor (ETT) is a rare neoplasm of the chorionic type intermediate trophoblastic cells. It is a neoplasm of reproductive age women and usually follows a gestational event. ETT can occur at both intra uterine and extra uterine sites and can be confused with other entities such as squamous cell carcinoma, placental site nodule, placental site trophoblastic tumor etc. Hence, proper diagnosis of this tumor is necessary to avoid unnecessary, excessive treatment as surgical treatment is considered sufficient for ETT. We present a case of ETT in a 36 year old female, who came with symptoms of pain abdomen, white discharge per vaginum and a cervical mass.

Key words: Epithelioid trophoblastic tumor, Immunohistochemistry, Intermediate trophoblastic cells
