Brain Metastasis of Uterine Carcinosarcoma
Int J Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg
Uterine carcinosarcoma is rare and aggressive tumor with high rates of recurrence and distant metastases. However, brain involvement is exceedingly uncommon and only several cases have been reported so far. Surgery, chemotherapy, and radiotherapy have shown a survival benefit in patients with uterine carcinosarcoma, unfortunately complete remission is extremely rare, and the occurrence of brain metastases represents a very poor prognostic factor. In the case of the single brain metastasis, the removal of the brain lesion is the first oncological goal.
We present a case of a 74-years old female patient who underwent surgery for brain metastasis 6 years after radical hysterectomy performed due to uterine carcinosarcoma.
