Pure testicular choriocarcinoma is a rare histological subtype of germ cell tumor (GCT) and typically presents with distant metastases and aggressive features leading to a generally poor prognosis. Unique to choriocarcinoma among GCT histological subtypes is the propensity of spontaneous hemorrhage into metastatic lesions. We report a case of pure testicular choriocarcinoma in a 46-year-old male with postoperative acute pulmonary hemorrhage secondary to tumor invasion of the lungs, and the subsequent management of his disease with a discussion of relevant literature.
