抄録

Epithelioid sarcoma is a rare malignant tumor that occurs mainly in young adults and most frequently involves the distal portion of the upper extremities. The tumor is particularly rare in children and more frequently involves the head and neck; only one case involving the forearm has been reported in a child under 10 years of age, and he was treated with amputation. We report the case of a 6-year-old boy with an epithelioid sarcoma of the forearm whose initial management had been inappropriate. The patient was ultimately treated with limb sparing surgery. Two years later, no local recurrence was evident but pleural metastases were detected.
