Ewing's sarcoma is a malignant non-osteogenic primary tumor of the bone. It is one of the most common primary malignant tumors of bone. Peak incidence is noticed in second decade of life with male preponderance of 1.6:1. It occurs most frequently in long bones and flat bones of pelvic girdles. In 30% cases, Ewing's sarcoma is multicentric in origin. In 14-50%, multiple metastases are present at the time of diagnosis. CNS spread is rare and isolated CNS involvement is not seen. Skull metastasis of Ewing's sarcoma is not rare compared to primary Ewing's sarcoma of the skull, but the actual frequency is unknown. We wish to report a case of "Primary Ewing's sarcoma of scapula with metastasis to Skull Vault in a Child resulting in sutural diastasis" diagnosed by clinicoradiological examination and confirmed by histopathology.
