Malignant mixed Mullerian tumor

Common Name(s)

Malignant mixed Mullerian tumor

A malignant mixed mŸllerian tumor (MMMT), also called a carcinosarcoma, is a type of cancer that contains two types of cells, known as the adenocarcinoma and sarcoma types. These tumors usually develop in tissues of the female genital tract and are associated with a poor outcome. The majority of these tumors arise in the uterus, though they can also occur in the ovaries, fallopian tubes, and cervix. Very rarely, MMMTs can develop in the female peritoneum (lining of the abdominal wall).
