Rhabdomyosarcoma associated with familial adenomatous polyposis
We report a case of a 16 year old girl with orbital rhabdomyosarcoma who during chemotherapy developed bloody diarrhoea. On investigation she was found to have multiple colonic polyps. Cytogenetic analysis has shown a pattern typical of familial adenomatous polyposis. We present a review of the literature concerning the associations of familial adenomatous polyposis. The association of familial adenomatous polyposis with rhabdomyosarcoma has not been previously reported.
