Spindle-Cell Rhabdomyosarcoma of the Lateral Pelvic Wall and Inguinal Canal A Case Report and Literature Review


Samantha M. Linhares*, Shaina Sedighim, Alexander Gaidarski, Talia Kamdjou and Simon Dadoun

Spindle cell sarcoma is a variant of Rhabdo Myo Sarcomas (RMS) which rarely presents in adulthood. Often, this entity has a predilection for head and neck. This pathology infrequently involves extra-abdominal pelvic areas. Herein, we present a case of spindle cell variant of spindle cell RMS of the lateral pelvic area and inguinal canal in a 50-year-old woman. This is the first case of its kind reported in the Englishlanguage literature. Negative margin radical resection is advised. For effective surgical planning, a biopsy-based preoperative diagnosis is essential. In the present case, a biopsy of the tumor's sluggish area resulted in an inaccurate pre-operative diagnosis. The abdominal wall and inguinal canal needed to be mesh-reconstructed after a wide resection.
