Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A 74-year-old man with a penile mass was diagnosed with sarcomatoid urothelial carcinoma. Further workup did not show any other lesions or metastases. He was treated with a total penectomy, bilateral inguinal lymph node dissection, and pelvic lymphadenectomy. Following surgery, he received six cycles of cisplatin and gemcitabine. Sarcomatoid carcinoma and carcinosarcoma of the urethra are rare; six prior cases have been reported in the literature, with this being the first urothelial with sarcomatoid component. Survival in patients with sarcomatoid carcinoma or carcinosarcoma of the urinary tract is poor, with the limited data supporting a multimodal approach to improve survival.
