Abstract

Askin tumour is a form of primitive neuroectodermal tumour arising from the thoracopulmonary region. The patient being reported is a young adult who initially presented in dyspnoea and was found to have hemothorax following chest wall injury. About one year later, he again presented in dyspnoea. But this time he was found to have a mass arising from the previous traumatic site, which was diagnosed as Askin tumour. Such a scenario of Askin tumour arising from a traumatic site is uncommon. Moreover, Askin tumour itself is a rare presentation in adults.
