ABSTRACT
Spindle cell carcinoma is an uncommon type of squamous cell carcinoma characterized by a mixture of malignant epithelial and mesenchymal cells. Most spindle cell tumors are polypoid and pedunculated. It is usually detected at an early stage, removed by laryngoscope guided polypectomy at the time of diagnosis, and seems to have good prognosis. The tools for diagnosing spindle cell carcinoma are histopathological analysis and immunohistochemical analysis. With reviews of literature, we report a 72-year-old patient complaining of hoarseness and dysphagia who was later diagnosed as spindle cell carcinoma.
