Ovarian carcinosarcoma is a rare malignant gynecological tumor that accounts for about 1% of all ovarian cancers. The positive diagnosis of this disease is based on clinical examination, radiological examinations and essentially histological confirmation: the association of a carcinomatous component with a sarcomatous component. Generally, the treatment performed is surgical cytoreduction, followed by chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy. As the prognosis is poor, the survival rate will depend mainly on the quality of surgical management.Multicenter or multinational studies, based on genetic and molecular signaling pathways, are required to better understand this tumor subtype and compare its treatment modalities.

Author Keywords: Ovarian carcinosarcoma, rare cancer, poor prognosis, surgical reduction, chemotherapy.

Abstract: (french)

Le carcinosarcome ovarien est une tumeur gynécologique maligne rare qui représente environ 1% de l’ensemble des cancers ovariens. Le diagnostic positif de cette maladie repose sur l’examen clinique, les examens radiologiques et essentiellement la confirmation histologique : l’association d’une composante carcinomateuse à une composante sarcomateuse. Généralement, le traitement réalisé est la cytoréduction chirurgicale, suivie d’une chimiothérapie et/ou d’une radiothérapie. Le pronostic étant sombre, le taux de survie dépendra essentiellement de la qualité de la prise en charge chirurgicale.Des études multicentriques ou multinationales, basés sur les voies de signalisation génétique et moléculaire, sont requises afin de mieux comprendre ce sous-type de tumeur et de comparer ses modalités de traitement.

Author Keywords: Carcinosarcome ovarien, cancer rare, pronostic sombre, réduction chirurgicale, chimiothérapie.
