Ther Peripheral Neuroectodermal Tumor of the Thoracic Wall: Results of Surgical Treatment

The peripheral neuroectodermal tumor (PNET) is seen nowadays as a more specified form of Ewing’s sarcoma with a worse prognosis. We report our experiences of three children (10–14 years old) with PNET of the right thoracic wall, all treated surgically within 1 year. Complete local resection - the main aspect of PNET thérapie - of the initially voluminous tumors was not difficult due to chemotherapy and radiotherapy for 5 months prior to surgery.
