Ewing's sarcoma of the ulna treated with sub-total resection
The present case has been reported in the journal Oncology Letters.

Ewing's sarcoma of the bone is the second most frequently occurring malignant bone tumor in children and adolescents. Ewing's sarcoma in the ulna are extremely rare.

Thus, the surgical options for reconstruction of the elbow are limited and technically challenging. In the current study, a 29-year-old male with Ewing's sarcoma of the ulna was treated with a sub-total resection and reconstruction using a non-vascularized, autogenous fibular graft and hernia mesh.

At the 2-year follow-up, the patient had returned to his previous occupation with no evidence of local recurrence or distant metastasis.

The functional recovery was satisfactory, and the patient could perform active movement of the elbow from 0° to 135°, forearm pronation to 30°, supination to 85° and had full hand function. The grip power of the left hand was 36 kg, which was 86% of the contralateral side (42 kg).
