ABSTRACT
A 35-year-old female presented with pain and swelling of the left wrist. A diagnosis of Ewing sarcoma was made and she underwent neoadjuvant chemotherapy and surgery. Macroscopic viable areas remained on the map of the surgical specimen; as such, she was classified as a poor responder and received high dose adjuvant chemotherapy. She remained disease-free for five years, until age 40. A vaginal polyp was then detected during a routine gynaecologic examination. It was removed and histopathology revealed metastatic Ewing sarcoma. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of a vaginal metastasis of Ewing sarcoma.

Mentions: A 35 year-old woman with no significant medical history presented with pain and swelling of the left wrist over the past year. A radiograph and computed tomography scan revealed a lytic lesion of the distal left radius (Figure 1), with soft tissue extension on MR examination (Figure 2, 3).
