Abstract

Ewing sarcoma (ES) is the second most common primary bone malignancy in children and is typically characterized by a translocation involving the EWS gene on chromosome 22 and a member of the ETS family of genes: FLI1 (90%), ERG1 (5%), ETV1 (1%), ETV4 (1%), and FEV (1%). We identified three new cases of t(7;22) (p22;q12) (EWS-ETV1) ES and a literature search revealed an additional six cases. In comparison to conventional ES with t(11;22) (q24;q12) (EWS-FLI1), the t(7;22) ES variant has a higher propensity for females and children in a younger age group and it occurs more commonly in extraosseous locations.
