Synopsis: 
The present study included eight cases with pulmonary carcinosarcoma. Pathological diagnosis of PC was made by surgical resection in all patients. Operations were lobectomy (n = 6), bilobectomy inferior (n = 1) and pneumonectomy (n = 1). The median survival time was 21.5 months (range: 1-75 months).

ABSTRACT

Background: Pulmonary carcinosarcoma (PC) is a rare malignant tumour of the lung. Due to its rarity, few studies have been reported and its clinicopathological characteristics and treatment outcomes remain unclear. The aim of the present study was to evaluate clinical, radiological and pathological findings and treatment outcomes of patients with PC.
