Abstract

Epithelioid sarcoma is a rare lesion usually involving extremities. We report the case of a patient presenting with an epithelioid sarcoma of the dorsal aspect of the thumb. Surgical treatment consisted in a wide resection, arthrodesis of the metacarpophalangeal joint of the thumb and skin coverage with a kite flap. This case report illustrates a rare diagnosis potentially encountered by hand surgeons and the possible use of a kite flap in a non-traumatic context.
