Ewing's tumor in brothers. An unusual observation

Am J Clin Oncol. 1986 Aug;9(4):358-60. doi: 10.1097/00000421-198608000-00017.


Ewing's sarcoma in two brothers is described. This has not been previously reported in the literature. Hypotheses which might explain this association are discussed. Genetic factors predisposing to the development of neoplasia are a very attractive possibility, although viral factors and chance association cannot be excluded.
