Abstract

Prospects for long-term survival in Ewing's sarcoma are generally poor when the primary tumor occurs in the spine. This is a case report of a child who presented at age five years and who has survived for almost 16 years. The treatment was surgical excision of the tumor followed by chemotherapy and regional radiation therapy.
