abstract

  • The most important predictors of outcome in patients with adult RMS are patient age, tumor size, extent of disease, and margin status after resection. In contrast to patients with pediatric RMS, no association was noted between survival and histologic subtype in this group of patients with adult RMS. All histologic subtypes of RMS are aggressive malignancies with poor disease specific survival despite aggressive multimodality management.
