Gallbladder Carcinosarcoma corresponds to less than 1% of all malignant tumors of the gallbladder. We report an 82 years old female subjected to an open cholecystectomy with the preoperative diagnosis of acute cholecystitis. The pathological study of the surgical piece showed a malignant tumor with epithelial (carcinoma) and stromal (sarcoma) components. Apostoperative CAT scan showed multiple nodular lesions in the peritoneum and omentum. The patient died eight months after the operation.
