Abstract

Spindle cell carcinoma (SPCC) is a rare, malignant variant of squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), which shows biphasic proliferation of the conventional SCC component and malignant spindle shape cells with sarcomatous appearance. We present two cases of SPCC of the true vocal fold that presented as a benign appearing subepithelial mass. We discuss the patient presentation, voice assessment, surgical treatment, and a review of the literature.
