EVAN’S TUMOR: A RARE CASE REPORT AND REVIEW OF LITERATURE
Abhishek Soni*, G. K. Jadhav, Sapna Manocha and Hemant Pandey
Evan’s tumor or Low grade fibromyxoid sarcoma is a variant of fibrosarcoma with high potential for metastasis and sometimes a long interval between the tumor presentation and metastasis. We present the case of a 20-year-old male who developed a large mass in the sacral region. The tumor was excised. The tumor on histopathology evaluation was diagnosed as Evan’s tumor. The disease recurred after a follow up of six months. The tumor was excised again and adjuvant radiation therapy was given to the patient. Due to the rarity of Evan’s tumor, there is no dedicated follow-up protocol. In order to diagnose the disease and metastasis as early as possible, it is vital to inform the patients about the longstanding metastatic potential of the disease. Our patient, however, showed complete response to the treatment and is free of disease at six month follow-up.
Keywords: Evan’s, fibrosarcoma, metastasis.
