Epithelioid sarcoma (ES) typically arises as a firm nodule on the extremities of young men. The tumor is remarkable for diagnostic difficulties both clinically and histopathologically resulting in a high frequency of initial misdiagnosis. ES is also known to have a high rate of recurrence and high rate of metastasis predominantly to the lymph nodes, lungs, and scalp. Herein, the second case of ES with metastasis to the tongue is reported.
