Cervical carcinosarcoma (CS) is a rare gynecologic tumor. The histogenesis, clinical features, and optimal treatment remain unclear. We report a case of cervical CS recurrence to the right lung, which had complete response by treating with ifosfamide, doxorubicin and cisplatin (IAP). A 61-year-old woman underwent semi-radical hysterectomy, bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy, and pelvic lymphadenectomy for CS of the uterine cervix. Eleven months later, the patient presented with left pulmonary metastasis. She refused debulking surgery and had chemotherapy with IAP. After four cycles of chemotherapy, the metastatic tumor completely disappeared. Unfortunately, a re-recurrent tumor was seen in the same lung area six months after IAP. Eventually, she died 39 months after surgery.
