Adult colonic rhabdomyosarcoma - A case report with review of literature

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

We report a 62-year-old male who presented with altered bowel habit, right hypochondriac pain, anorexia, vomiting and significant weight loss. A hard mass was palpable in the right lumbar region and iliac fossa on clinical examination. Colonoscopic biopsy revealed a malignant neoplasm of ascending colon. The patient underwent right radical hemicolectomy and histopathological examination of the resected specimen revealed alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma which is extremely rare in adults and very uncommon in the gastrointestinal tract.
