On the begining of July 2019 took place international EOTTD conference (The European Organization for the Treatment of Trophoblastic Disease). The meeting place was in the one of the largest university hospitasl in Europe, the Charité hospital in Berlin. The main postulate of this year's EOTTD conference was to emphasize the role of instant and correct clinical, biochemical, pathomorphological, immunohistochemical and genetic diagnosis, conducting intensive, compliant with treatment recommendations and the need to assess the quality of life of patients. National registers, the creation of reference centers and their cooperation should serve to achieve these goals.
