With the increasing use of fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) as a diagnostic procedure, cytologic diagnosis is being used to determine treatment protocols without recourse to surgical biopsy and histologic confirmation. FNAC is a powerful tool in the diagnosis and management of bone tumors in cancer practice. Here we report one such case of a 11-year old Sikh boy who presented with shoulder mass, in whom the diagnosis of Ewing's Sarcoma was made by FN aspirate material which showed presence of small round cells with monomorphic nuclei and PAS positivity in the cytoplasm, thus highlighting the utility of FNAC in giving a rapid and reliable preoperative diagnosis.
