Carcinosarcomas cs background

Carcinosarcomas (CS): Background

  • Malignant neoplasm

    • Biphasic epithelial and mesenchymal elements

    • Breast, lung, urogenital, gastrointestinal

    • Hypothesis- Multiclonal vs. Monoclonal

    • IHC studies establish 2 distinct populations

  • Primary cutaneous CS

    • Dawson 1972

    • Basal and squamous cell carcinoma

    • Pleomorphic/ atypical fibroxanthoma/ MFH


Case report

Case Report

  • 62 y.o. male

  • Subcutaneous 4 mm nodule lateral to sternum

  • Slow growth over 18 months

  • Excisional bx followed by wide local excision


Methods

Methods

  • All case reports and series of CCS

  • Search terms:

    • Carcinosarcoma

    • Carcinoma and sarcoma

    • Sarcomatous sarcoma

    • Biphasic sarcomatoid carcinoma

    • Spindle cell carcinoma

  • 48 publications reviewed


  • Results

    Results

    • Between 1972 and 2007: 74 cases of CCS have been reported.


    Results1

    Results


    Conclusions

    Conclusions

    • Primary CCS is a rare disease.

    • 6th-8th decade of life

    • Survival predicted by:

      • Epithelial component

      • Growth pattern

      • Tumor size

      • Duration

      • LN involvement

      • Age


    Conclusions1

    Conclusions

    • Treatment approach

      • Wide local excision

      • Negative margins

    • No defined role for adjuvant radiation therapy or chemotherapy.
