Abstract

Thirty-seven patients with nonmetastatic gestational trophoblastic disease (NMGTD) were treated with one or more cycles of oral methotrexate following intramuscular methotrexate as part of induction chemotherapy. Remission was achieved in 31 patients (83.8%). All failures were readily cured with alternate regimens. Prospective studies using this safe, easily administered modality are needed to verify its apparent efficacy.
