Carcinosarcoma, formerly known as malignant mixed Mullerian tumors (MMMTs) are highly aggressive tumors that include both malignant epithelial and mesenchymal or stromal elements. The most common site of carcinosarcomas in a female reproductive organ is the endometrium with an incidence of 2/100,000 females, whereas carcinosarcomas arising from the paratubal mass are extremely rare malignancies accounting for fewer than 0.1% of MMMTs. Carcinosarcomas of the Fallopian tube usually occur in the fifth to sixth decades in postmenopausal women with the most common presenting symptom of abdominal pain, followed by vaginal bleeding and abdominal distention. There have been limited published cases worldwide, that is, it has been a thing of interest to be analyzed in today's era. A rare case of paratubal carcinosarcoma is highlighted in this paper as it discourses its clinicopathological characteristics and assesses the prognostic factors associated with treatment outcome and survival.
