Carcinosarcoma or mixed Müllerian malignant tumors are a rare entity representing 1% of all the malignant ovarian neoplasms. It has poor prognosis, and the survival outcome is worst. We report a case of carcinosarcoma of the ovary in a 68-year-old female. The patient was treated with cytoreductive surgery followed by platinum- and taxane-based combination chemotherapy regimen. Now, the patient is under regular follow-up with long-term overall survival for 76 months without any disease. Therefore, our case highlights the importance of cytoreductive surgery followed by adjuvant chemotherapy with platinum- and taxane-based combination regimen in the form of improved survival demanding a long-term follow-up for such cases.
