Description

Uterine carcinosarcoma (USC) is a rare, aggressive primary neoplasm of the Uterus that represents less than 5% of all uterine malignancies. It usually affects older females in their seventh decade. USC disproportionally affects black women more and it has a worse prognosis than other endometrial carcinomas. We present a case of uterine carcinosarcoma in a young Caucasian female who presented with vague symptoms of nausea, vomiting, and severe iron deficiency anemia.
