Bottom Line: Ewing's sarcoma is a malignant primary bone tumor primarily seen in the long bones.Primary Ewing's sarcoma of the cranium is quite uncommon occurring in 1% of the cases.Contrast enhanced computed tomography (CECT) revealed a typical moth eaten appearance in the first and second cervical vertebra.

ABSTRACT
Ewing's sarcoma is a malignant primary bone tumor primarily seen in the long bones. Primary Ewing's sarcoma of the cranium is quite uncommon occurring in 1% of the cases. We report the occurrence of this rare lesion in a 24-year-old male presenting with progressively increasing swelling in left mastoid region mimicking a mastoid abscess which was later diagnosed on Fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) as a small round cell tumor as Ewing's sarcoma. Contrast enhanced computed tomography (CECT) revealed a typical moth eaten appearance in the first and second cervical vertebra.

Figure 1: (L)-Firm, fixed, tender swelling measuring 9×8 cm over the left mastoid, (R)-(CECT) revealing destruction of C1, C2 vertebra (moth eaten appearance)

Mentions: We report the case of a 24-year-old male presenting with a progressively increasing painful swelling in left temporo-occipital region over a period of one year. Physical examination revealed a firm, fixed, tender swelling measuring 9 × 8 cm over the left mastoid [Figure 1]. Neurological examination showed sensory and motor weakness in left upper limb.
