Introduction: We report here a case of carcinomatous pachymeningitis in a patient followed for EWING'S SARCOMA (ES) of the leg. Methods: A 17-year-old patient followed for leg Ewing's sarcoma undergoing neoadjuvant chemotherapy who presents for the management of acute and atrocious headaches of rapidly progressive onset. He had a brain MRI that showed carcinomatous pachymeningitis, the diagnosis is confirmed by a lumbar puncture of the CEREBROSPINAL FLUID (CSF) that showed the presence of cancer cells related to Ewing's sarcoma. Results: The patient was proposed for chemotherapy and craniospinal irradiation (CSI), but he died before starting his treatment. Conclusions: Carcinomatous pachymeningitis in Ewing's sarcoma is an unusual metastatic localization and its prognosis is pejorative.
