Rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) can arise in retroperitoneum. Twenty-two cases of retroperitoneal rhabdomyosarcoma have been reported by Pack and Tabah (1954). It occurs in both children and adults. However, retroperitoneal rhabdomyosarcoma is an extremely rare tumor in general, which is occasionally reported in a large cohort of cases with retroperitoneal tumors. Of 121 cases of rhabdomyosarcoma reviewed by Stout (1946), only one case of primary retroperitoneal rhabdomyosarcoma was found.
