Abstract


Epithelioid sarcoma is an uncommon kind of sarcoma that often affects young individuals and has a preference for distal upper extremity; forearm and hand. This usually begins as slow-growing, painless tumor. It can also be seen as multiple tumours. Lymphatic channels are the primary routes of dissemination for the disease’s recurrence and spread. Using polygonal cells, a biopsy is the preferred technique of diagnosis. Treatment primarily consists of wide resection.

Here, we present a case of epithelioid sarcoma involving the wrist of 52-years old female. It was initially diagnosed by imprint cytology. To make an accurate diagnosis in a case with a unique history, it is necessary to consider the clinical presentation, morphologic examination, and a broad panel of immunohistochemical staining.
