Overview

NCI Definition: An aggressive malignant mixed epithelial and mesenchymal tumor that arises from the uterine corpus. It usually affects elderly postmenopausal women and presents with vaginal bleeding. It is characterized by the presence of a malignant epithelial component that is usually glandular and a sarcomatous component. [1]

Uterine corpus carcinosarcomas most frequently harbor alterations in TP53, PIK3CA, KRAS, FBXW7, and CCNE1 [2].

Most Commonly Altered Genes in Uterine Corpus Carcinosarcoma

TP53 Mutation, TP53 c.217-c.1178 Missense, TP53 Missense, PIK3CA Mutation, and FBXW7 Mutation are the most common alterations in uterine corpus carcinosarcoma [2].
