Abstract

Nonosseous Ewing sarcoma commonly occurs in the extremities or deep soft tissues. However, cutaneous and subcutaneous locations have been reported. A 3-year-old boy presented with a 2-year history of a painless, slowly growing mid-scrotal mass. Pathology after surgical excision revealed the lesion to be Ewing sarcoma. The patient is free of metastatic disease and is currently undergoing chemotherapy. Soft-tissue malignancies must be kept in the differential diagnosis of any solid paratesticular mass in a child. Although rhabdomyosarcoma is the most common, as this case demonstrates, other rare sarcomas are also possible.
