Malignant Mixed Mullerian Tumours (Carcinosarcoma of Uterine Cervix) (MMMT): Case Report and Review of Literature
Abstract: Carcinosarcoma of the uterine cervix are very rare malignancy of the female reproductive tract with poor prognosis. Only fifty cases have been reported in literature until 2013. We report a 49 years old Para 7 + 3 presenting with vaginal bleeding, offensive discharge with intermittent abdominal pain. On examination an impression of a cervical polyp was made. She had total abdominal hysterectomy and bilateral salpingoophorectomy. The histological diagnosis of carcinosarcoma of the uterine cervix was made. She had chemoradiation therapy as adjuvant therapy in view of the diagnosis. Although cancer of the cervix is the second commonest cancer worldwide and the leading cause of cancer death in women, this particular histological variant is very rare, as such no standard protocol of management developed for it yet and it carries a very poor prognosis.
