A Rare Presentation of Ewing Sarcoma as Supraclavicular Swelling in an Adolescent Male – A Case Report
AbstractSupraclavicular swellings can have numerous differential diagnosis ranging from infections to malignancy, in almost all age groups. Here we present a case of 15 year old boy who presented with left supraclavicular swelling and clinically diagnosed as a case of Tuberculosis, underwent FNAC which was suggestive of Small Round Blue Cell Tumor favouring Ewing sarcoma. Later, trucut biopsy of the swelling confirmed the diagnosis of Ewing sarcoma. Ewing sarcoma is one of the most common primary malignancy of bone in children but can also arise from extraskeletal region like soft tissue.
