Choriocarcinoma is originally described by Sanger in 1989 and it may be changed from hydatadiforme mole, abortion and rarely normal pregnancy. The incidence of spinal metastasis is unknown. We have reported a case of a 17 year-old female who admitted to Korea University Hospital on September 10, 1980, with complaints of severe pain and motor weakness of the legs. She had episode of laparatomy for removal of tumor mass of Rt. Ovary 4 months prior to admission. She has received operation for the removal of the spinal metastatic tumor on the 5th admission day and the mass was proved as metastatic choriocarcinoma pathologically.
