Primary maxillary localization of Ewing’s sarcoma is an unusual clinical case and radiological features as distinct from those observed in other sites characterize involvement of facial bones and it may mimic the more common squamous cell carcinoma of the maxilla in presentation. We describe our experience with this case where we treated Ewing’s sarcoma of the maxilla successfully with local irradiation, intermittent but prolonged systemic chemotherapy followed by salvage surgery for the recurrent tumor.
