Journal Title:Indian Journal of Child Health

Rhabdomyosarcoma is the most common soft tissue malignancy of childhood; however, can be seen very rarely in the neonatal period also. It may arise anywhere in the body; head and neck, and genitourinary regions being the most frequent sites. Truncal and gluteal rhabdomyosarcoma is relatively rare occurrence. We report a neonate with embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma arising from the gluteal muscles at birth. Ultrasonography and Magnetic resonance imaging raised the possibility of hemangioma lymhangioma. Total excision was done and chemotherapy given. The child had a recurrence after 6 months where the nodule along with the scar was excised. A chemoport was introduced and the child underwent further 4 cycles of chemotherapy after recurrence. He is well on 2 years follow up without any disability.
