Abstract

We report the ultrasonography (US) and computed tomography (CT)
findings of a rare case of extraskeletal Ewing sarcoma involving
the left chest wall with a diameter of 4cm in a 5 years old
girl. The lesion was heterogenously hypoechoic on sonography
with a lobulated smooth contour. On CT, the lesion had central
necrotic areas and was enhancing heterogeneously. With these US
and CT findings surgical excision of the tumor was performed.
Histopathologically the mass was evaluated as round cell malignant
neoplasm (Ewing tumor/ “Askin tumor”/ primitive neuroectodermal
tumor (PNET)). Chemotherapy and radiotherapy were planned to
the patient.
