Malignant Mixed Mullerian Tumours (MMMTs) or carcinosarcomas of uterus are rare aggressive tumours of mesenchymal origin. It is associated with high incidence of lymphatic, pulmonary and peritoneal metastasis. We hereby present two cases of mixed mullerian tumour. Case-1 was a 60-year-old post menopausal woman who had come with complaint of metrorrhagia and a protruding mass in the vagina. Case-2 was of a 54-year-old post-menopausal woman who came with complaints of heavy vaginal bleeding, pelvic pain since two months. For the assessment of these tumours Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is preferred imaging modality due to excellent tissue contrast to detect the myometrial invasion, local extent and staging. Preoperative differentiation of mullerian tumour with endometrial carcinoma is important as both have different treatment.
Carcinosarcoma, Polypoidal mass, Uterine neoplasm
