Diffuse or multifocal expression of CD10 in the stromal compartment is seen in most adenosarcomas and often highlights the periglandular cuffing (Figure 7).
26,27) Recently described alterations in adenosarcoma include MYBL1 amplification and ATRX mutation, which are each present in 50% of adenosarcomas with sarcomatous overgrowth.

A subsequent study, (2) in 1979, added a few cases to the original series, and the term Mullerian adenosarcoma has since become universally recognized.
Mullerian adenosarcoma is an uncommon biphasic malignant mesenchymal tumor composed of a benign glandular component and a malignant, but generally low-grade, stromal component.
2) The occurrence of this tumour type is unusual and its pathogenesis is not completely understood since epithelial cells are not normally present in the retroperitoneum for adenomas and adenosarcomas to develop.
The study group included 7 cases of squamous cell carcinoma, 10 adenocarcinomas, 4 adenosquamous tumors, 2 adenosarcomas, and 2 neuroendocrine tumors.
El carcinosarcoma representa el 50% de los sarcomas uterinos, seguidos de leiomiosarcomas (30%), sarcomas del estroma endometrial (10%) y adenosarcomas (8%), siendo el resto de variedades histologicas una verdadera rareza (9, 10).
Of the 64 patients who had a preoperative CT scan of the abdomen and pelvis, the histology included 46 adenocarcinomas, 2 adenosquamous carcinomas, 3 adenosarcomas, 11 papillary squamous or clear cell carcinomas, and 2 squamous cell carcinomas.
15] Adenosarcomas show an admixture of a benign epithelial component and a sarcomatous component, whereas carcinosarcomas are characterized by an admixture of malignant epithelial and mesenchymal elements, and carcinofibromas are composed of a malignant epithelial component and benign fibrous component.
