Abstract

Primary Ewing's sarcoma arising from frontal bone is rare. We report a case of 17-year-old boy with painless swelling in the frontoparietal region. Computed tomography showed destruction of bone and an enhancing extradural mass. The patient underwent wide excision combined with radio and chemotherapy. Histopathology revealed it to be round cell sarcoma, and immunohistochemistry confirmed it to be Ewing's sarcoma.
