Aims and objectives
Rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) is a malignant neoplasm from stem cells,
precursors of skeletal muscle,
which is one of the most common soft tissue sarcomas in childhood.
RMS can exist in any part of the body,
but almost 30% of PMS is in the head and neck. The aim of this study was to analyze and describe the main radiological features of rhabdomyosarcomas of the head and neck region in children,
and also to compare radiological features between embryonal and alveolar histological rhabdomyosarcomas.
