Uterine carcinosarcoma is a highly aggressive, biphasic tumor composed of both epithelial and mesenchymal elements derived from a monoclonal origin. Total abdominal hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo oophorectomy is the main stay of treatment. High rates of loco regional and systemic recurrence have been seen needing lymphadenectomy and postoperative chemo and radio therapy. There are no specific guidelines for the treatment of carcinosarcoma endometrium. Though not proven radio and chemotherapy helps in improved surgical and minimal loco regional disease.
