Epithelioid sarcoma: A case series of three different presentations

Dhaval Jetly, Annapoorani Varadarajan, Kinnari S Naik, Priya Patel


Background: Epithelioid sarcoma is a rare malignancy that presents diagnostic difficulties.

Cases: We report three cases of epithelioid sarcoma with different presentations and clinical course. One patient had a classicaltype epithelioid sarcoma while rest two suffered from the rarer proximal-type. All three underwent surgical excision while two of them also had postoperative adjuvant therapy. The diagnostic challenges and the final outcome has been discussed in detail.

Conclusion: The diagnosis of epithelioid sarcoma needs a high index of clinical suspicion and immunohistochemistry is extremely valuable. Adequacy of index surgery affects the ultimate prognosis.
