Introduction Extraskeletal Ewing's sarcoma is reported in the medical literature, but none has been described as presenting with a resectable liver mass.Methods A case of a 29-year-old male patient who presented with a large symptomatic mass in the right lobe of the liver which, following resection, demonstrated the characteristic histopathology and fusion protein (EWSR1-Fli1) found in Ewing's sarcoma was reported.Discussion Complete surgical resection offers the best long-term outlook. Cure rates with appropriate surgical and chemotherapeutic management range between 30 and 60 %.
