Spindle cell epithelioma is a very rare benign tumour of the vagina, which contains epithelial and mesenchymal components and co-expresses the markers for both. It has its origin in the epithelial cells of the remnants of the vestibular gland. The presence of glandular structures and the pattern of immunostaining, help in the differentiation of these tumours from the other common vaginal tumours.
