Epithelioid Sarcoma (ES) are rare tumors of unknown histogenesis and display multidirectional differentiation, which is predominantly epithelial. They are usually slow growing, with peak incidence in young adult men and occur predominantly in extremities. We report the cases of two men aged 44 and 41 years with ES of the hand. We analyze through this observation the clinical, histological and therapeutic characteristics of this entity.
