Congenital neurogenous sarcoma with rhabdomyosarcomatous differentiation.


A congenital malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor contained small rhabdomyosarcomatous portions in both the retroperitoneal pelvic primary and in the subpleural lung metastasis. There was no family history of Von Recklinghausen's disease. Of the 10 patients with this tumor previously reported, the youngest is 14 yr old, and eight had familial neurofibromatosis.
