LAFONT, Alejandra et al. Rhabdomyosarcoma of the biliary tree: Case report. Arch. argent. pediatr. [online]. 2013, vol.111, n.4, pp.e94-e96. ISSN 0325-0075.

We present a girl 21 months old with recurrent jaundice. Initially she presented fever of unknown origin but jaundice, white coloured stools and pruritus were observed 10 days later. She underwent endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography with sphincterotomy; symptoms dissapeared. One month later, symptoms came back and, suspecting choledochal cyst the patient underwent endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography for diagnostic confrmation and for placement of a biliary stent. The material obtained was sent for histopathology study and embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma of the biliary tree was diagnosed. The patient started chemotherapy following EpSSGRMS 2005 protocol. There was no evidence of metastasis. She completed treatment and to the day of this report she is free of illness.

Keywords : Rhabdomyosarcoma; Biliarytree.
