Ewing's sarcoma/Peripheral neurectodermal tumour spectrum is a group of sarcomas with small blue round cells with more or less features of neuroectodermal differentiation. ES/PNET entity also includes peripheral neuroepithelioma and Askin tumour. These tumours display both mesenchymal stem cell and neural crest stem cell properties. It is mainly found in adolescents and young adults. Cytogenetics and immunochemistry are essential for the differential diagnosis with other sarcomas.

The EWSR1 gene provides instructions for making the EWS protein, whose function is not completely understood. The EWS protein has two regions that contribute to its function.
Mutations involving the EWSR1 gene can cause a type of cancerous tumor known as Ewing sarcoma. These tumors develop in bones or soft tissues, such as nerves and cartilage. There are several types of Ewing sarcoma, including Ewing sarcoma of bone, extraosseous Ewing sarcoma, peripheral primitive neuroectodermal tumor, and Askin tumor. The mutations that cause these tumors are acquired during a person's lifetime and are present only in the tumor cells.
