It is very rare tumor and generally has a poor prognosis. Its homologous type (carcinosarcoma) consists of carcinomatous and homologous sarcomatous components, and its heterologous type (mixed mesodermal tumor) consists of carcinomatous and heterologous sarcomatous components (striated muscle, cartilage or bone).
