Rhabdomyosarcoma in Childhood

  • R. D. T. Jenkin


Rhabdomyosarcoma is the commonest soft-tissue sarcoma of childhood (Table I). In a series of 101 consecutive children with soft-tissue sarcoma treated at the Princess Margaret Hospital during 1958–1970, 70 had rhabdomyosarcoma, and in a further 13 the diagnosis was unspecified sarcoma where the histological pattern was too poorly differentiated to permit further categorization. These 83 patients were all treated in the same fashion and will be analyzed together.
