Abstract

Rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) of the breast is extremely rare condition. A 15-year-old girl presented to our clinic complaining of left breast mass that is 5 cm x 5 cm, immunohistochemistry approached it initially as giant fibro-adenoma but later diagnosed as high grade embryonal RMS. Diagnosis confirmed which showed markers suggestive of RMS. Patient initially underwent simple lumpectomy, but after histopathology results she underwent surgical margin revision and chemotherapy. Unfortunately, after chemotherapy she developed local recurrence. Wider local excision or mastectomy is to be considered in such cases.
