Recurrent and Resistant Gestational Trophoblastic Neoplasia

Recurrent gestational trophoblastic neoplasia (GTN) is cancer that has recurred (come back) after it has been treated. The cancer may come back in the uterus or in other parts of the body.

Gestational trophoblastic neoplasia that does not respond to treatment is called resistant GTN.
