Case Report

The curious case of a cutaneous eruptive hybrid: an admixture of carcinoma and sarcoma


G Chen 陳光, S Lee 李啟焱, SP Mann


Carcinosarcomas (CS) are a rare group of skin tumours with malignant epithelial and mesenchymal differentiation.

Furthermore, there is a lack of consensus regarding treatment options and follow-up recommendations.
