Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Pulmonary carcinosarcoma is a rare malignancy, comprising less than 0.3% of all malignant neoplasms of the lung. Since the first report of this tumor by Kika in 1908, approximately 100 cases have been described in the literature. In this report, we present five cases treated by our group over a period of 20 years.
