Abstract

Ewing's sarcoma (EWS) is the second most common primary bone tumor seen in children and adolescents, first being osteosarcoma. Skull lesions are seen in 6 to 9% of cases. The tumor tends to reside most frequently on frontal and parietal bones. In the literature, majority of papers on calvarial EWS present cases with intracranial involvement; extracranial extension is reported in only eight cases. The case that we are presenting in this report is a 23-year-old male patient with multiple infiltrations in femur, costal bones, and calvarium which had been diagnosed radiologically and histopathologically as EWS. The calvarial metastasis had reached a very huge size with dimensions of approximately 7.5 × 7.5 × 9.5 cm and was successfully excised totally. Twelve months of follow-up revealed no recurrence in the surgical site showing that total removal of giant cranial EWS may improve morbidity of these patients.
