AbstractWe report a case of a 21-year-old woman presenting with quadriplegia which was initially diagnosed with an epidural abscess in view of her MR scan and raised inflammatory marker levels. Histology revealed an epidural extra-osseous Ewing's sarcoma (EES). Epidural location of EES is a very rare condition which can be very challenging to diagnose. Early diagnosis and surgical excision followed by chemotherapy represent the main stem of management.
