Abstract

Rhabdomyosarcomas are the most common soft tissue sarcoma in adult and children that accompany with skeletal muscle differentiation. Skin metastasis of rhabdomyosarcomas is unusual and has only been sporadically reported in literature. In this paper we present a case of skin metastasis of rhabdomyosarcoma in an 8-year-old girl that has treated with chemotherapy.
