Mixed Mullerian tumor



Mixed Mullerian tumor
Classification & external resources
ICD-O: 8950
Malignant mixed Mullerian tumor (MMMT) is a rare uterine sarcoma or carcinosarcoma occurring in the female abdominal cavity. Because it is so rare (and nobody famous has died of it), there is little research on MMMT. The current thinking is that it might not be related to endometrial cancer, one speculation being that it might be a cancer of the Stem cells, because the body starts producing spindle cells in an out-of-control fashion.

It appears most commonly in the body of the uterus, but can also appear in the cervix.[1]
