Ewing Sarcoma (ES) of the mandible is a rare malignancy with poor prognosis which can be misdiagnosed as odontogenic inflammatory lesions or infections. We present a 7-year old male child
which had been previously misdiagnosed and treated as an odontogenic abscess. This reported case describes the clinical, radiological and histopathological findings of oral ES with difficulties
in management.
Key words: Ewing’s Sarcoma, Malignancy, Mandible, Odontogenic Infections.
