The Ewing’s sarcoma family of tumors is an uncommon group of malignant neoplasms that may be located in both skeletal and extraskeletal regions. Extraskeletal Ewing’s sarcoma (EES) is quite rare and predominantly involves the soft tissues of the trunk or the extremities. There are few patients reported as EES involving the head and neck, from previous studies. We present a case of EES involving the posterior cervical neck and its subsequent surgical excision.
