Metastatic alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma to the breast: a case report

, : Metastatic alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma to the breast: a case report. Nigerian Postgraduate Medical Journal 15(2): 137-140

To present the unusual occurrence of a Metastatic Alveolar Rhabdomyosarcoma to the right breast in a young woman, six years after the primary in the right thigh had been surgically excised and treated. A search of the literature from this part of the world showed that this is quite rare as no report of a similar case was found. Breast lumpectomy samples submitted were routinely processed to obtain paraffin sections which were then stained routinely with haematoxylin and eosin. Reticulin stain and immunohistochemistry were used to exclude an epithelial lesion. Metastatic Rhabdomyosarcoma to the breast is a rare condition and is almost exclusive to adolescent females. Routine breast examinations should be mandatory for long term female survivors of primary Rhabdomyosarcomas.
