A 71-year-old man was hospitalized with a chief complaint of asymptomatic gross hematuria. Cystoscopy and CT scan revealed a large invasive tumor at the posterior wall of the trigone. We performed total cystectomy with formation of ileal conduit. Histologically, this tumor was consisted of transitional cell carcinoma (G2) and leiomyosarcoma, therefore, diagnosis of carcinosarcoma was made. Unfortunately, the patient died 4 months after the operation due to recurrence in the abdominal and the pelvic cavity.
