• Malignant peripheral neuroectodermal tumors are rare neoplasms of the head and neck. We describe a case of a teenage girl presenting with this neoplasm in the head and neck. The clinical histological and ultrastructural features are reviewed and presented, along with guidelines for the management of this highly aggressive neoplasm.
