Few cases of malignant rhabdoid tumour (MRT) of the liver are reported in literature and always in paediatric patients.

The histology showed round or fusiform, loosely cohesive cells. The cytoplasm contained(More)
Malignant rhabdoid tumor (MRT) is a very rare liver tumor, with only a few cases reported in the literature. MRT generally occurs in pediatric patients and prognosis is usually very poor. Here we report a very rare case of MRT occurring in a young adult who is still alive with no sign of recurrence at 41 months of follow-up. MRI and computed tomography(More)
