Extract

Introduction: We present a patient with a metastatic Evans tumor (low- grade fibromyxoid sarcoma) of the right thoracic cavity. Its origin in the chest cavity was so far described in only four cases [1-2].

Case: The 19-year-old patient was referred with a cervical lymph node swelling persisting for several months and reported night sweats and weight loss. Surgical biopsy showed a spindle cell neoplasia of unknown dignity. Further analysis revealed a balanced 7;16 translocation (FUS-CREB3L2 fusion gene) which is pathognomonic for low-grade fibromyxoid sarcoma.
