Neuroendocrine carcinoma (NEC) is a tumor that occurs in different locations, particularly the lungs and larynx. The oral cavity is a rare site for a primary NEC. This report describes 2 cases of primary NEC in the oral cavity. Case 1 occurred in the anterior mandibular gingiva in a 25-year-old woman and presented with a special histologic appearance. This patient showed no evidence of recurrence 13 months after marginal resection of the anterior mandible. Case 2 was a primary NEC with some foci of squamous cell differentiation arising in the right buccal region in a 38-year-old woman. This patient showed no evidence of disease 8 months after tumor resection and postoperative iodine-125 brachytherapy. To the best of the authors' knowledge, case 1 is the youngest patient with NEC reported in the oral cavity to date in the English-language literature, and case 2 is the first report of a primary NEC in the buccal region.
