Spindle cell variants of embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma
in the paratesticular region: a report of the Intergroup Rhabdomyosarcoma Study.
in Mastoid and Middle Ear in a 3-Year-Old Girl: A Rare Case Report .
In conclusion, the case discussed revealed a parameningeal embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma
with diffuse skeletal metastases and visceral metastatic calcifications, and highlights the fact that chest radiographs and CT findings may be nonspecific and that the use of Tc-99m MDP scintigraphy is valuable to the diagnosis.
Immunohistochemical evaluation revealed positivity for HHF-35, desmin and myogenin, thereby confirming the diagnosis of embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma
A biopsy at Birmingham Children's Hospital discovered a tumour inside the head, known as embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma
, of which there are only a few cases diagnosed each year throughout the world.
Note the abundant myxoid background stroma that may also be seen in liposarcoma and embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma
The histopathology report showed an 11-cm poorly differentiated embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma
The other most common type, embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma
, occurs in the head and neck region and genitourinary tract.
Incidence rates rise exponentially with age with a modest peak in childhood due primarily to the increased development of embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma
14) Skeletal muscle markers, myoD1, and myogenin can be of value if embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma
is a diagnostic consideration.
