Abstract

A 16 year old male presented with Ewing’s sarcoma of the sternum which extended into the anterior mediastinum. At presentation, there was no evidence of metastatic disease. The patient was initially treated with chemotherapy. The residual tumor was subsequently resected and the sternal defect was repaired with a polyprolene mesh and a muscle flap. Post-operatively, the patient did well and was discharged home. The patient has been seen in the clinic and is doing well post-operatively. Although extremely rare, Ewing’s sarcoma occurs in the sternum. A combined effort between oncology, thoracic surgery and plastic surgery for single excision and reconstruction is optimal for the patient.
