A 6-year-old female was admitted with abdominal pain and a mass in the right abdomen. Her lactose dehydrogenase level was 1,200 IU/L, and neuron specific enolase was 120 ng/ml. Computed tomography scan confirmed a large right renal mass with necrosis. A right radical nephrectomy was performed. The tumor was completely encapsulated. Based on small round cell histology, strong MIC-2 (CD99) positive tumor cells, and EWS-FLI-1 fusion transcript, Ewing sarcoma/primitive neuroectodermal tumor of the kidney was diagnosed. Induction and follow-up with seven cycles of chemotherapy were given after surgery. She has had no evidence of recurrence 90 months from diagnosis.
