abstract

  • Extraosseous Ewing's sarcoma/primitive neuroectodermal tumor (ES/PNET) is a rare soft tissue tumor of childhood usually found in the extremities. The authors present the case of a 17-year-old girl who presented with right flank pain and hematuria and during operation was found to have a right ureteral mass. The histopathologic, immunohistochemical, ultrastructural, and cytogenetic characteristics of the excised mass were consistent with extraosseous ES/PNET. This is the first known reported case of extraosseous ES/ PNET of the ureter. The pathologic features and clinical management of this case, as well as a review of the literature, are presented.
