Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The addition of chemotherapy and radiotherapy to local treatment for Ewing's sarcoma of bone (ES) significantly bettered its prognosis. Nonetheless, although with no signs of local recurrence some patients still relapse with lung metastases. These patients are generally treated with non-surgical procedures. The few reports in literature on surgical resection of metachronous pulmonary metastases do not allow any conclusions. This study aims to report the results achieved in 24 Ewing's sarcoma patients who relapsed only with lung metastases, and no local recurrence, treated with surgery at the authors' institution.
