Cervical polyp: an unusual presentation of carcinosarcoma
Keywords: Carcinosarcoma, Cervix
AbstractCervical carsinosarcomas are rare neoplasms of the female genital tract. Approximately 35 cases have been reported previously.1 The other name for carcinosarcoma is a malignant mixed mullerian tumour. Usually, this occurs in the uterus, but it can also appear in the ovaries or the cervix.2 Cervical primaries are extremely rare, and typically occur in postmenopausal women presenting with a polypoid or pedunculated cervical mass. We present this rare entity for gynaecologists to consider, namely the diagnosis of carcinosarcoma in a cervical mass in a postmenopausal woman.
