Abstract

Ewing's sarcoma is a highly malignant neoplasm of bones which accounts for the 10% of primary bone malignancies. Primary Ewing's sarcoma of skull vault is very rare and constitutes 1-6% of all Ewing's sarcomas. We present a case of a primary and a radiation-induced skull Ewing's sarcoma. The symptoms, neuroimaging findings and the treatment for these cases are reviewed. Both children were operated with favorable outcome.
