Spindle cell carcinoma (SpCC) or sarcomatoid carcinoma of the tongue is rare and aggressive variant of squamous cell carcinoma with incidence of <1%. It is characterised by proliferation of epithelial and mesenchymal components. It is important to diagnose this variant of SCC, because of its tendency to recur and early metastasis.
We are reporting this rare tumor with an unusual location in a forty year old gentleman to contribute in part to the better understanding and awareness of this rare malignancy.
