Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Carcinosarcoma of the bladder is a rare neoplasm composed of a mixture of malignant epithelial and mesenchymal components. The presentation and clinical course of an infiltrating carcinosarcoma located in a bladder diverticulum coexisting with prostatic adenocarcinoma in a 69-year-old man are described. We believe this to be the fifth report of true carcinosarcoma appearing in a bladder diverticulum.
