Ewing sarcoma is typically a skeletal based tumor of presumed neuroectodermal origin. Primary Ewing sarcoma of the kidney is exceedingly rare and is usually found in young adults. We report a case of primary Ewing sarcoma with inferior vena cava (IVC) invasion that was managed successfully with radical nephrectomy and partial replacement of IVC using bovine pericardial patch.
