Abstract

Epitheloid Sarcoma of the Tongue

Epitheloid sarcoma is a rare tumour, with high rate of recurrence and metastasis. Typically the primary lesion is in the extremities of young adults. Intraoral primary lesion is extremely rare. We report a rare case of epitheloid sarcoma of the tongue, based on histopathological examination that was initially diagnosed as poorly differentiated squamous cell carcinoma.

Keywords: Epitheloid sarcoma; Squamous cell carcinoma; Tongue
