Abstract

Rhabdomyosarcoma is the soft tissue tumor derived from embryonic primary mesenchyme. Neck, head and genitourinary region are the common locations of rhabdomyosarcoma. Here, we report a 7-month-old child who presented with a protruding mass per vaginally. Abdominal examination revealed a 6 cm x 6 cm hard, irregular, non-tender mass at pelvic region. Ultrasound of abdomen showed large heterogenous pelvic mass of uterine origin. Magnetic resonance imaging of whole abdomen revealed an intrapelvic teratoma (9.5 x 7.4 x 10 cm3) with left sided hydronephrotic change as the mass was pressing the rectum and bladder. The child underwent a total hysterectomy. Histopathology result was suggestive of rahbdomyosarcoma of uterus.
