Ewing's sarcoma is the second most common malignancy of bone among children. It commonly affects the diaphysial region of long bones, while small bones of hands and foot are rarely affected. We report a case of calcaneal Ewing's sarcoma which was misdiagnosed as fungal chronic osteomyelitis and treated inappropriately. High index of suspicion is required in diagnosing tumors at rare sites to avoid undue delay in initiating appropriate therapy.
