Epithelioid sarcoma is a rare malignant soft tissue tumor of uncertain origin that occurs most commonly in the distal extremities of young males. Herein, we report a case of epithelioid sarcoma over right thigh of a 19-year-old man with regional lymph node metastasis. Pathologically, the tumor was composed of nodular proliferation of epithelioid cells and spindle cells with necrosis. Mitosis and cellular atypia were also noted. The patient underwent radical resection and remained free of disease one year later. We also review the literature about the clinical, pathologic and immunohistochemical features of this rare tumor in this report.
