Uterine carcinosarcoma is a rare aggressive tumor also known as Malignant Mixed Mullerian Tumor.  Prognosis is poor with 30-40% having extrauterine involvement at the first presentation and over 10% with distant metastasis. The primary treatment is surgery, along with radio-chemotherapy. We report a case of uterine carcinosarcoma in a 65 y para four lady who presented with blood mixed discharge per vagina for 1 mo and polypoidal mass through the cervical os. Endometrial biopsy showed carcinosarcoma. She was managed with surgery. She received paclitaxel and carboplatin chemotherapy and with no recurrences at 6mo. Written consent was obtained for the case report
