Abstract

Primary Ewing's sarcoma of the chest wall is a rare and extremely malignant tumor, which is difficult to eradicate regardless of the mode of treatment. Different combinations of therapy have been used in the past. However, an effective regimen, which employs current methods of surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy in appropriately-timed sequence, has not yet been defined. 15 cases of primary Ewing's sarcoma arising in the connective tissue of the chest wall are reviewed. From the data presented, it appears that radical excision of the tumor, especially when combined with postoperative radiotherapy, offers the best chance of long-term local control and cure.
