Urology, 10/28/2013Zheng L, et al.
Fetal rhabdomyoma (F–RM) is a very rare tumor that usually occurs in the head and neck. Paratesticular F–RM in children is extremely rare. In this article, authors report the case of a 12–year–old boy diagnosed with paratesticular F–RM. The patient was well, with no local recurrence or metastasis 5 years after excision of the tumor. This is the first case of F–RM reported in an adolescent. They also reviewed the literature and compared the patient with the 11 previously reported patients with F–RM.
