Özet

The hormone human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG), secreted by molar tissue, is structurally similar to thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH). Hyperthyroidism in trophoblastic disease is thought to be the result of TSH receptor activation by extremely elevated levels of hCG. Significant elevations in hCG levels are less common in cases of partial moles.
