Abstract

Ewing’s sarcoma is an aggressive fatal malignancy of bones and soft-tissue. It predominantly affects the young population, with a worldwide incidence of three cases per million. The pelvis, extremities, and ribs are the most common sites. We present a case of massive Ewing’s sarcoma of the right femur with metastasis to bones and lungs. The patient was treated with chemotherapy. However, he succumbed to his illness before completion of therapy. In conclusion, Ewing’s sarcoma with distant metastasis is a high risk case with poor prognosis. Integrating novel molecular targets with conventional chemotherapeutic agents holds a promise for high-risk Ewing’s sarcoma patients.

PlumX Metrics

PlumX Metrics provide insights into the ways people interact with individual pieces of research output (articles, conference proceedings, book chapters, and many more) in the online environment. Examples include, when research is mentioned in the news or is tweeted about. Collectively known as PlumX Metrics, these metrics are divided into five categories to help make sense of the huge amounts of data involved and to enable analysis by comparing like with like.
