A previously healthy 9-year-old male presented with a several-week history of progressive shortness of breath.The initial chest radiograph showed a large, poorly defined mass occupying the left hemithorax.There was no splaying or erosion of the ribs. Subsequent chest CT with IV contrast showed pleural-based conglomerate lobular masses of the left hemithorax.The pleural involvement was accompanied by extrapleural extension with encasement of the left seventh rib. Large, left pleural effusion was present along with left lung atelectasis. The CT images in the lung window showed contralateral right lung metastatic lesions. which confirmed the diagnosis as Askin tumor (Ewing sarcoma family of tumors). Differential diagnosis includes other sarcomas such as chondrosarcoma, pleuropulmonary blastoma, lymphoma, and infection.
