Spindle cell lesions of the head and neck region are diverse in nature by means of clinical and biological heterogeneity. Though few lesions are found to be malignant, several others are benign or merely reactive in nature. Although these lesions are fairly common occurring in other parts of the body, they are very rare in the oral cavity, accounting for less than 1% of all tumours in the oral region. Herein, a case of 48-year-old man who presented with a polypoid lesion of the maxilla has been reported. Histopathological examination and immunohistochemistry revealed spindle cell sarcoma of the left maxillary sinus. We present this rare tumour to contribute to the better understanding and awareness of this rare malignancy where diagnosis can be very challenging.
