Ewing's sarcoma is a highly lethal and the sixth most common malignant neoplasm of bone and soft tissue, composed of small round cells of uncertain histogenesis. However, recent studies suggest that Ewing's Sarcoma is a neuroectodermally derived tumor with various degrees of differentiation of the primitive neural tissue. A case of Ewing's sarcoma of mandible is presented and controversial issues in the histogenesis and molecular biology of Ewing's sarcoma are focused, with emphasis on ultrastructure, immunohistochemical analysis, and prognostic indicators.
