Abstract

Spindle cell carcinoma is a rare variant of squamous cell carcinoma characterized histologically by a biphasic pattern with both squamous and spindle cell component. There is controversy in the histogenesis, biologic behavior, optimal treatment and prognostic factor for tumor. Treatment must be similar for squamous cell carcinoma. With a review of literature, we report a case of a 52-year-old female with spindle cell carcinoma in the uterine cervix, which has been managed by total hysterectomy.
