Abstract:

Spindle cell carcinoma is a rare, high malignant variant of squamous cell carcinoma, which shows biphasic proliferation of conventional squamous cell carcinoma component and malignant spindle-shaped cells with sarcomatous appearance. A case of spindle cell carcinoma of 17-years-old female patient was presented with swelling in the oral cavity for 1 month in relation to upper jaw, computed tomography scan revealed iso-to-hypodense mass lesion of gingival origin on either side of maxilla on right side with periosteal reaction in inner aspect and minimal reactive bone erosion of the alveolar process of the right upper canine and premolar teeth. Histological finding showed typical histology of spindle cell carcinoma. In summary, we present a unique case of spindle cell carcinoma in gingival of 17-years-old female, which has not been described in the literature.
