Extraskeletal Ewing's sarcoma is a mesenchymal malign soft tissue tumor which generally affects the lower extremities and paravertebral region and is very rarely seen in the head and neck area. Early diagnosis and chemotherapy and radiotherapy program combines with surgical excision would be the appropriate treatment modality. In this article we present a case of extraskeletal Ewing's sarcoma which arised from the buccal area as an unusual localization together with information from the literature. In the physical examination of a 23-year old male patient who admitted to our clinic with a complaint of painless mass on his cheek which had been increasingly growing for approximately three months, a painless semi-mobile mass of approximately 5x3 cm in size with regular borders and elastic consistency was found within buccal soft tissue in the left maxillary area. The mass was excised under general anesthesia. No local recurrences or findings of distant metastases were observed during the 11-month postoperative follow-up.
