Rhabdomyosarcoma of the orbit in a four months old infant in Zimbabwe: a case report
MetadataShow full item record
Infants younger than one year of age with Rhabdomyosacoma appear to have worse prognosis compared to older children due partly to high rates of local failure. We report a 4 months old infant with orbital rhabdomyosarcoma with poor outcome.. Reluctance to use aggressive local control measures and suboptimal chemotherapy dosing are significant contributory factors. Call is made for need for more studies to determine appropriate local therapy in infants with rhabdomyosarcoma.
