  • © Cambridge University Press 2015. D.I. was a 5-year-old girl who presented with a several-week history of constipation, pain with urination, increasing abdominal girth, and occasional pain in her let leg. She was seen by her pediatrician, who palpated an abdominal/pelvic mass. An abdominal sonogram showed a 6–7 cm pelvic mass, arising from the apex of the vagina, displacing the uterus and ovaries anteriorly and the rectum posteriorly. She also had hydronephrosis of the let kidney and mild hydronephrosis of the right kidney. A biopsy of the mass was consistent with embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma. Metastatic workup was negative.
