Abstract

Cerebral rhabdomyosarcoma is a highly aggressive tumor with poor prognosis affecting children and, rarely, adults. The authors describe the case of a patient treated for primary fronto-parietal embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma with a long survival (30 months after surgery) and no clinical or radiological evidence of recurrence and discuss the chemotherapy applied in this case.
