Abstract

We report a 16-year-old girl with a multiple primary rhabdomyosarcoma of right upper extremity who developed contralateral breast metastasis in her clinical course. She was diagnosed to have multiple primary rhabdomyosarcoma of the right upper extremity with lung metastasis one year prior to finding a mass in her left breast. The excisional biopsy of the breast mass confirmed metastatic rhabdomyosarcoma. Despite aggressive chemotherapy and subcutaneous total mastectomy, she developed a widespread bone and lung metastasis in few months and expired. Metastatic rhabdomyosarcoma of the breast is very rare but it should be considered in adolescent females with primary alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma, specially located on an extremity.

PlumX Metrics

PlumX Metrics provide insights into the ways people interact with individual pieces of research output (articles, conference proceedings, book chapters, and many more) in the online environment. Examples include, when research is mentioned in the news or is tweeted about. Collectively known as PlumX Metrics, these metrics are divided into five categories to help make sense of the huge amounts of data involved and to enable analysis by comparing like with like.
