We report a carcinosarcoma (CS) of the gallbladder in an 83-year-old woman. Ultrasonography found an enlarged gallbladder with thickened walls, a 3-cm gallstone, and a polypoid mass in the fundus. Pathological examination revealed neoplastic tissue composed of sarcomatous and glandular components. Twelve months later, the patient is alive. We review 24 other cases in the literature to outline the characteristics of this tumor.
