All children with rhabdomyosarcoma require multimodality therapy to maximize local tumor control. This can involve different combinations of chemotherapy, surgery, and radiation therapy.

A 21-month-old boy was brought to us with a 1-month history of an enlarging, nontender mass on his left cheek. He had undergone an intraoral biopsy of the mass at another institution. The previous pathology report identified the mass as a embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma. A previous bone marrow biopsy was negative for tumor, and computed tomography (CT) of the chest and abdomen were negative for metastatic disease. The patient was then referred to us for a second opinion.
