Keywords:Ewing’s sarcoma, PNET, uterine cervix, youngest patient
Ewing’s sarcoma, a round cell malignancy of bone and soft tissue occurs predominantly in adolescents and young adults. Extraosseous Ewing’s sarcoma is extremely rare. As such cervical sarcomas constitute less than 1% of all cervical malignancies and out of this, only 4% constitute Ewing’s sarcoma i.e. 0.04 % of all cervical sarcomas.. Less than 20 cases of Ewing’s sarcoma of cervix have been reported in the English literature and this is probably the 20 th case.. Most of these cases presented with abnormal vaginal bleeding. The rarity and probability of misdiagnosing it as small cell carcinoma creates the need to report this case to add to the available literature. We report a case of probably youngest patient till date, aged 12 years female child diagnosed as Ewing’s sarcoma on Fine needle aspiration cytology(FNAC), further confirmed by biopsy, Immunohistochemistry (IHC) and t(11,22) chromosomal translocation
