A Case Report on Uterine Carcinosarcoma

Dr. Vatsala Shahi | Dr. Minthami Sharon

Abstract: The carcinosarcoma is a rare malignant mixed m?llerian tumour with a highly aggressive, biphasic tumour consisting of both epithelial and mesenchymal components. The presented case refers to a 52 year old female with heavy menstrual bleeding. The Ultrasound and computed tomography showed a large uterine mass with regional and distant metastatic lymphadenopathy. The histopathological and immunohistochemical analysis of the surgically resected piece allowed the carcinosarcoma diagnosis. Considering the highly invasive nature of uterine carcinosarcomas, timely detection of this cancer using characteristic imaging and pathology findings is of extreme importance to improve the patient?s survival. The uterine carcinosarcoma?s incidence is rare, that is why this case is interesting taking in consideration the biphasic pattern of the tumour.
