Abstract
Malignant mixed mullerian tumors (MMMT) are uncommon neoplasms of the female genital tract that histologically consist of malignant epithelial components and stromal components. Most MMMTs are found in postmenopausal women. The clinical course is very poor due to frequent metastasis and recurrence. Among the carcinogenic epidemiologic predisposing factors, the relationship of previous pelvic irradiation to subsequent development of a malignant mixed mullerian tumor has been reported in recent years. We are reporting a case of MMMT of the uterus which occured in a woman who received radiation therapy for cervical cancer 11 years before the present date.
Key Words: Malignant mixed mullerian tumor, MMMT, pelvic irradiation
