EXTRA OSSEOUS PRIMARY EWING’S SARCOMA
AbstractThe case of 20 years old boy with an extra osseous Ewing’s sarcoma is described. He was initiallydiagnosed as a case of infiltrative malignant tumour of left suprarenal gland on the basis of preoperativeworkup but postoperative biopsy of surgically excised specimen confirmed Extra-osseous Ewing’sSarcoma (EES) suprarenal gland with no evidence of malignancy on skeletal scintiscan, bone marrowaspirate and histopathology. Suprarenal location of primary EES is unknown and probably has not beenreported in literature. We report a unique case of EES.Keywords: Ewing’s sarcoma, extra osseous, suprarenal gland, management
