Metastatic disease tends to recur after remission of Ewing's sarcoma. The effectiveness of ifosfamide in patients with recurrent Ewing's sarcoma was reported in recent years. We administered IFOS combined with etoposide, pirarubicin, and cyclophosphamide to 4 Ewing's sarcoma patients with metastatic disease, and succeeded in inducing second remissions in all cases.
