Background: Primary cutaneous/subcutaneous Ewing sarcoma (scEWS) is extremely rare. We describe clinical features, treatment, and outcome of this Ewing localization. Procedure: Retrospective study (1996-2012) on 56 patients. Results: Most primary scEWS occurred in late adolescent/young adult females (F/M=1.9; median age 21.5 years), with primary tumor in the extremity/trunk (48.5%/39%). Only 35/56 samples had Real-Time-Polymerase-Chain-Reaction/Fluorescent-In-Situ-Hybridization analysis, 32/35 had EWS-translocation. Most of them exhibited known favorable prognostic factors: localized disease (54/56), initial tumor volume
