Pleomorphic rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) is a rare malignancy, and treatment protocols for this tumor are not established. Although Intergroup Rhabdomyosarcoma Study data have led to improvement in overall and disease-free survival for children with juvenile RMS, the applicability of those findings to adult pleomorphic RMS is uncertain. This report presents the case of a 29-year-old man with pleomorphic RMS of the forearm (a location not previously reported in current literature); reviews the immunohistochemical, ultrastructural, and histologic diagnostic criteria; and discusses treatment.
