Spindle cell/sclerosing rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) is an uncommon type of RMS and has been classified as a separate entity by the WHO in 2013. It affects both children and adults with a greater incidence in males. These tumors can pose a diagnostic challenge and can be difficult to differentiate from other spindle cell malignant tumors in the head and neck. Here, we report a case of spindle cell/sclerosing RMS in a young woman presenting with a swelling on the left side of the face of 3 months duration. A careful correlation with the radiographic images, histopathological findings and immunohistochemistry helped to arrive at a diagnosis.
