The clinicopathological findings in a child with extraskeletal Ewing sarcoma are described. The patient complained of pain in the lower back and difficulty walking. An extraskeletal, epidural, friable tumor, 2-3 cm long was removed from the epidural space. It had no relationship with the bone structures. Light and electron microscopic examination of the tumor led to the diagnosis of Ewing sarcoma. The morphological aspects of this neoplasia and the problem of the differential diagnosis with other small cell tumors of the epidural space are discussed.

Abstract

The clinicopathological findings in a child with extraskeletal Ewing sarcoma are described. The patient complained of pain in the lower back and difficulty walking. An extraskeletal, epidural, friable tumor, 2-3 cm long was removed from the epidural space. It had no relationship with the bone structures. Light and electron microscopic examination of the tumor led to the diagnosis of Ewing sarcoma. The morphological aspects of this neoplasia and the problem of the differential diagnosis with other small cell tumors of the epidural space are discussed.
