Primary Ewing's Sarcoma of the Lung.

Hwang SK, Kim DK, Park SI, Kim YH, Kim HR - Korean J Thorac Cardiovasc Surg (2014)

Bottom Line: Most cases of Ewing's sarcoma are reported in the bone, and extraosseous Ewing's sarcoma is an extremely rare disease.Here, we report a rare case of primary pulmonary Ewing's sarcoma in a patient with hemoptysis.The patient underwent right upper lung lobe lobectomy with adjuvant chemotherapy and radiation therapy and has been free of recurrent disease for 4 years.

ABSTRACT
Most cases of Ewing's sarcoma are reported in the bone, and extraosseous Ewing's sarcoma is an extremely rare disease. Here, we report a rare case of primary pulmonary Ewing's sarcoma in a patient with hemoptysis. The patient underwent right upper lung lobe lobectomy with adjuvant chemotherapy and radiation therapy and has been free of recurrent disease for 4 years.

Mentions: A 41-year-old woman was admitted for hemoptysis of 4 days' duration. Her medical and family history was unremarkable. She visited a local clinic, where a chest radiograph revealed a radio-opaque mass in the right upper lung lobe. She was referred to Asan Medical Center. Computed tomography revealed several oval, smoothly marginated, and low attenuation lesions with ground-glass opacity in the right upper lung lobe (Fig. 1). Positron emission tomography with 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) showed multiple round or oval lesions in the right upper lung lobe. The FDG uptake was increased in the lesions (maximal standard uptake value: 9.7) without any other abnormal uptake. She underwent bronchoscopy, and a transbronchial lung biopsy and wash with cytology were then performed. The pathological diagnosis of the specimen was a malignant small round cell tumor. Surgical resection was selected for definitive diagnosis and treatment.
