CD99 has historically been used as a marker of PNET/Ewing sarcoma, as well as a subset of spindle cell tumors, including synovial sarcoma and solitary fibrous tumor, although there are other more specific markers now available for these latter tumors. Use of CD99 is not recommended; please contact one of our pathologists for alternative markers.
