Abstract

Malignant mixed Müllerian tumors (carcinosarcomas) are biphasic tumors of the uterus and uterine cervix with carcinomatous and sarcomatous components. Malignant mixed Müllerian tumors (MMMT) are rare tumors, accounting for <5% of uterine cancers. They most commonly metastasize to the vagina, pelvic wall, lungs, and ovaries. We report a unique case of MMMT, which developed in a 69-year-old woman after she presented with hip and knee pain. Ultimately, her pain was found to be caused by metastatic tumor deposits in her psoas muscle. The primary tumor was found to be a MMMT of the uterine corpus. We recommend practitioners be aware of this entity and include it and other metastatic lesions in their differential diagnosis in difficult cases of non-resolving pain.
