Abstract

A retrospective case review was carried out to report the outcomes in a contemporary case series of Ewing's sarcoma originating in the hand. We identified five patients treated since 1995. All five had wide surgical excision, one by ray amputation. All were treated with chemotherapy. Four patients also received radiation therapy, two to treat metastases and two as an adjunct to local excision. There were no local recurrences. Two patients developed metastases. Both died of their disease. Neither of these two patients had received local postoperative radiation therapy; one did not receive chemotherapy before definitive surgery. The other three patients were alive and free of disease at last follow-up, 4 to 12 years after initial presentation.
