Incidental Discovery of Embryonal Rhabdomyosarcoma on CT Imaging
KeywordsRhabdomyosarcoma, embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma, immunohistochemistry
Rhabdomyosarcoma is an uncommon soft tissue sarcoma that rarely presents in adults. Clinical presentation is dependent on site and size. We present the case of a woman who presented with acute-onset dyspnoea and whose pathology report confirmed embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma (ERMS) seen as an incidental finding on chest computed tomography. We also describe the clinical, laboratory and radiological work-up conducted to diagnose and manage ERMS in the critical care setting.
