Extraosseous Ewing's sarcoma of the vulva is extremely rare with only three such cases described. A 26-year-old woman presented with Ewing's sarcoma of the vulva. She received chemotherapy to shrink the lesion. However, the response was suboptimal and she subsequently received radiotherapy. Although resection was planned, she developed chest metastases within a short period of time and subsequently died.
