Abstract

Alveolar soft part sarcoma (ASPS) is a rare neoplasm constituting less than 1% of all soft tissue sarcomas. It tends to occur in the deep soft tissues of the lower extremities, however approximately 5-12% of cases are primary to the head and neck region. ASPS metastatic to the oral cavity is rare, with only four documented cases in the literature. Here, we present the case of a 29-year-old woman with ASPS metastatic to the mandible. To the best of our knowledge, this represents only the 5th documented case of ASPS metastatic to the oral cavity, and more specifically, the 3rd documented case of mandibular metastasis.
