ABSTRACT:

Carcinosarcomas are cancers of both elements of epithelium and connective tissue. It considered as tumour of visceral organs. These  tumours are aggressive in nature ,  leads to higher mortality and morbidity. Fortunately, they affect rarely to skin and  having good prognosis as they can be detected earlier than visceral counterpart. Only few cases reported to literature till date. We report a case of carcinosarcoma affecting scalp skin. Though it can be detected earlier and have good prognosis but like a present case it can be lethal due late presentation due ignorance on the part of patient and relatives. Histopathological examination with imaging is very important in deciding further management. A good reconstruction is often required after wide excision of lesion. As very a smaller number of cases reported till date in literature it is our aim to increase awareness in clinician about this potentially treatable condition and help to detect it as early as possible.
