Abstract

Primary Ewing's sarcoma of the nasal bone has not been previously described. This case presented as a mass in the left ala of the nose in a five year old female child. The clinical, radiological microscopic features are described and a review of literature is presented. The case was treated with neoadjuvant chemotherapy and local electron beam radiation therapy. The child was free of disease when she reported for follow up in July 1997. Although wide excision is part of the treatment approach in Ewing's sarcoma, in sites where surgery is not suitable local radiotherapy and chemotherapy adequately controls primary disease.
