Soft tissue giant cell tumor (GCT-ST) of low malignant potential is an uncommon neoplasm, considered as the soft tissue counterpart of giant cell tumor of bone. We report a rare case of soft tissue Giant Cell Tumour of Neck in a 61 years old female with swelling in left side of neck, spontaneous in onset. Incisional biopsy was reported as Soft Tissue Gant Cell Tumour of low malignant potential. Wide local excision of the tumour was done. We consider that, this tumor shows characteristic histologic features and clinical behaviour that render it a specific entity, being different from fibrous histiocytoma giant cell type, and leiomyosarcoma with osteoclast-like giant cells of soft tissues. This is exceptionally rare and we know of only five previously published cases in the head and neck.
