A Rare Case of Parotid Gland Carcinosarcoma

Author(s): Ghita Hatim, Xu Shan Sun, Roger Sun


Carcinosarcoma of the parotid gland is considered as a rare true malignant mixed tumor within both the stromal and epithelial components. We report the clinical case of a 37-year-old patient, with no previous history, who is followed up for a tumor of the right parotid revealed by a fast-growing neck mass on regard of the parotid region. After a parotidectomy with a cervical lymph node dissection, we retained the diagnosis of a carcinosarcoma probably developed on pleomorphic adenoma. We then, performed an adjuvant radiotherapy.
