Background: Ewing’s sarcoma (ES) is a malignancy primarily affecting bone tissue that is commonly diagnosed in adolescents and young adults. Its occurrence in the head and neck region is unusual and generally involves the mandible and maxilla. Radiographic finding in ES reflect many destructive nature of the lesion, like osteolysis, cortical erosion and soft tissue mass.
\r\nCase report: We report a rare case of ES of the maxilla in a 10-year-old boy with clinical, radiological, histopathological and immunohistochemical findings. Early detection of such lesions is difficult because the signs and the symptoms do not appear until the lesion has progressed considerably. \r\n
\r\nConclusion: This case explicates the importance of professional knowledge of the relevant aspects of malignant lesions such as Ewing’s sarcoma.
