Radiologic examinations revealed a huge prostatic tumor. Prostatic needle biopsy was performed and the pathological diagnosis was embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma of the prostate. He was referred to our hospital and treated with chemotherapy consisting of cisplatin, vincristine, cyclophosphamide, adriamycin, actinomycin-D and radiotherapy based on the regimen of IRS III. Total prostatectomy was performed 6 months after the start of therapy. Viable tumor cells were found in the prostate and the left obturator lymph nodes.
