ABSTRACT
Abstract A 35-year-old female presented with pain and swelling of the distal left radius. A diagnosis of Ewing sarcoma was made and she underwent neoadjuvant chemotherapy and surgery. Macroscopic viable areas remained on the map of the surgical specimen; as such, she was classified as a poor responder and received high dose adjuvant chemotherapy. She remained disease-free for five years, until age 40. A vaginal polyp was then detected during a routine gynaecologic examination. It was removed and histopathology revealed metastatic Ewing sarcoma. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of a vaginal metastasis of Ewing sarcoma.
