Rhabdomyosarcoma is a malignant neoplasm of mesenchymal cells, showing varying degrees of striated muscle cell differentiation. It predominantly occurs in children while rarely found in adults and involvement of the oral cavity accounts for only 10%–12% of all head-and-neck cases. Herewith, we present a rare case of spindle cell rhabdomyosarcoma in a 52-year old male, involving the mandibular gingiva, and describe the clinical, radiological, histopathological and immunohistochemical findings.
