ABSTRACT
We present a case of primary Ewing's sarcoma involved the cranium in a young child. The tumor originated in the temporal bone. The patient was acutely compromised by signs and symptoms of raised intracranial pressure. Radiographic studies including brain magnetic resonance image showed a huge mass affecting the temporal bone. Systemic examination found no evidence of other primary site or metastasis. Following aggressive surgical resection, the patient received intensive chemotherapy without radiotherapy. Nine months after surgery, there has been no recurrence of the tumor. The principles of the management in children with primary cranial Ewing's sarcoma are discussed.
