Ewings Sarcoma of the Kidney: A Rare Entity

Surya Kant Choubey, Gotam Pipara, Anurag Kumar

Abstract


Primary Ewings sarcoma (EWS) of the kidney is a very rare tumor and very few cases have been reported till date. We present a case of a young girl presenting to us with flank pain. On evaluation, she was found to have a renal mass. She was explored and a nephrectomy was done. Histopathology was reported as EWS. She was then planned for adjuvant chemotherapy. Primary EWS of the kidney is characterized by an aggressive course and poor prognosis. Hence, while dealing with renal masses in young patients, this entity should always be kept in mind.
