Synopsis

Variation of embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma. A polyp-like growth from beneath the mucosal epithelium, seen histologically with a characteristic "cambium layer." Similar in gross appearance to a bunch of grapes. May also appear as a single nodular mass. Arises in mucosal lined hollow organs, most commonly in the vagina. Specific locations include the cervix, uterus, bladder, ureter, common bile duct, or nasopharynx. This is a common lower genital tract tumor in adolescents, and is especially seen in infants. Findings include vaginal bleeding and pelvic mass. May be observed protruding from the vagina. Morbidity is high.

Treatment includes chemotherapy and surgical removal of the tumor.
