Chromosomal imbalances in primary hepatic carcinosarcoma.


Hepatic carcinosarcoma is an infrequent biphasic tumor composed of carcinomatous and sarcomatous elements, harboring an unfavorable prognosis. The developmental origin of both tumor components and possible molecular genetic mechanisms involved in tumorigenesis are still unclear. We report here a case of hepatic carcinosarcoma in a 76-year-old patient. The… (More)
