Abstract

Embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma of the prostate is a common tumour in infants and children. It is rarely seen in adults. The combined modality has improved outcome in children, where as in adults prognosis is poor. The lack of awareness of this entity in adults, delay in diagnosis and a more aggressive behavior of this malignancy are some of the reasons. We report two cases of embroyonal rhabdomyosarcoma of prostate in adults along with review of literature with an aim to define natural history and formulate treatment policy.
