Gallbladder Pathology Online

Pathology of Sarcomatoid Carcinoma/ Carcinoma of Gallbladder

Dr Sampurna Roy  MD    

 

Syn: Spindle cell carcinoma

Sarcoma and carcinosarcoma constitute 1.5% of malignant tumours of the gall bladder.

There is female preponderance and a high association with gall stones.

They have a poor prognosis and spread to the liver and  hilar lymph nodes.

Squamous cells may be seen.

Neoplastic glands may contain mucin.

The sarcomatous part is usually spindle celled.

Pleomorphic cells may be present together with areas of heterologous osteosarcoma, chondrosarcoma or rhabdomyosarcoma.  

Pleomorphic spindle cell carcinoma or poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma must be excluded by immunohistochemistry.

Leiomyosarcoma, angiosarcoma, liposarcoma, neurofibrosarcoma, fibrosarcoma and rhabdomyosarcoma have all been reported but are uncommon.
