Primary cutaneous carcinosarcoma is a biphasic tumour containing both malignant epithelial and malignant mesenchymal elements. The disease is a rare malignant skin tumour of unknown aetiology with significant potential to recur locally and to metastasise. Surgery is the primary therapeutic modality. We describe an unusual case of primary cutaneous Carcinosarcoma localised in the hand.
