|Abstract:||A case of rhabdomyosarcoma of the urinary bladder in an 11-month-old boy is presented. The chief complaint was complete urinary retention and histological examination showed embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma of the bladder. Initially, he was treated with vincristine, actinomycin-D and radiation therapy. This therapy was not effective, and he was next treated with vincristine, bleomycin, and cis-DDP. This therapy was significantly effective, and the tumor became non-palpable on physical examination. After six courses he was discharged and maintenance chemotherapy was continued until the tumor relapsed 1 year later. Finally he died of dyspnea due to diffuse pulmonary metastases approximately 2 years after the first diagnosis. We herein discuss several points which affect the prognosis and the usefulness of chemotherapy, especially combination therapy with vincristine, bleomycin, and cis-DDP for recurrent cases.|
