Aggressive Multimodality Therapy for a Urachal Rhabdomyosarcoma
Urachal rhabdomyosarcoma is a rare entity with a remarkably poor prognosis. Here we report on a 2-year-old male who presented with abdominal pain, fatigue, and urinary frequency. Imaging and subsequent surgical pathology confirmed urachal primary embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma. Our patient underwent upfront surgical resection with adjuvant chemoradiation per Children's Oncology Group (COG) protocol D9803. He is doing well 15 months after diagnosis. (Source: Urology)
