Case Discussion

Chest x-ray, CT and MRI of a16 year old male with a large destructive soft tissue mass arising form the the upper left chest wall.

Destruction of much of the 4th rib is noted with tumour extending into serratus anterior but not clearly into subscapularis. Enlarged vessels are visible anterolaterally. On both CT and post contrast fat saturated MRI, the mass heterogeneously enhances.

Features are consistent with the subsequently proven Ewing sarcoma of the chest wall.

Tumour represents a Ewing sarcoma of the chest wall (formerly known as Askin tumour or pPNET) - see Ewing sarcoma family of tumours
