  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

A report is presented on a rare case of alveo-lar rhabdomyosarcoma in the left eyeball and the orbit in a 9-year-old boy. Because of genera-lized metastasis the patient was dead 6 months after appearance of initial signs of the disease and 2 months after exenteration of the orbit. Histological studies during surgery and post-mortem autopsy showed that the tumor origi-nated in one of the extraocular muscles in its insertion and extended into the eyeball and the orbit. The rhabdomyosarcoma was of alveolar type.
