Cutaneous Ewing Sarcoma: Report of 2 Cases and Literature Review of Presentation, Treatment, and Outcome Of 76 Other Reported Cases
Cutaneous Ewing sarcoma is a rare variant that has been poorly characterized and has no standard therapy. We report 2 patients with cutaneous Ewing sarcoma and review 76 other cases reported in the literature for demographics, presentation, treatment, and outcome. Only 2 patients presented with metastatic disease, and only 8 patients developed metastatic disease. Ninety-one percent of all patients are alive despite wide variations in treatment regimens. On the basis of this summary, treatment consisting of local control with surgery and/or radiation and abbreviated chemotherapy is proposed as a treatment option for this less aggressive Ewing sarcoma.
