Case Report


Pulmonary Sarcomatoid Carcinoma is a rare, aggressive tumor comprising of both epithelial and mesenchymal cells. It is important to distinguish it from other lung tumors due to its poor prognosis and extensive metastasis. We present a case of a 36 year old female patient who initially presented with right sided weakness and slurred speech due to an ischemic infarct of the left basal ganglia. Further workup revealed a lung mass extending to the left atrium with spinal metastasis. Sarcomatoid Carcinoma remains a diagnostic challenge due to its early recurrence and atypical presentation.
