Urothelial carcinoma is well recognised to show morphological plasticity and differentiation to variant morphological types and heterologous components. Some variants are rare, but some of the subtypes have shown definite implications in prognosis with an aggressive course. The current WHO classification has not only reiterated its importance but has also provided clarification and definite factual points for better categorisation. The advent of recent diagnostic tools and tailored therapeutic implications has further validated the classification. The accurate recognition is vital and a poses real challenge to the pathologist in this scenario. We present to you a case of high-grade urothelial carcinoma with diverse and varied differentiation including small cell neuroendocrine carcinoma, adenocarcinoma and sarcomatoid carcinoma with rhabdomyosarcoma and chondrosarcoma as heterologous components.
