Abstract

Rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) is the most common malignant tumor of the soft tissues in infants and children. The incidence rate was 3.7 cases per million U.S. white children less than 15 years of age per year. The corresponding figure for U.S. black children was 4.1 571. The tumor occured at a relatively constant rate in other Caucasian populations. The lowest rate was 0.0 observed among United States, black girls (Table 1) 38,40,133,150,339,340,389,527,571,572.
