Abstract

Malignant rhabdoid tumours (MRT) of the liver are rare. The criteria for pathological diagnosis are clearly defined, but the clinical behaviour of these tumours is still emerging. We report a MRT of the liver with the rare clinical presentation of spontaneous rupture.

Key words Malignant rhabdoid tumour   Spontaneous rupture
