Rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) is a highly aggressive, malignant tumor of skeletal muscle cell, associated with an early and a wide spread metastasis. Although a commonly occurring soft tissue sarcoma in the pediatric population, it is seldom encountered in adults. Outcome for adult RMS is poorly documented due to its rarity. We report a case of pleomorphic RMS (PRMS) in a 50 years male presenting with an intra-abdominal mass along with a swelling in the right inguinal region measuring 4 cm Χ 3 cm. Computed tomography revealed an ill-defined intra-abdominal mass arising from the peritoneum. Abdominal mass was resected along with the dissection of inguinal lymph node. Histopathological examination of these masses coupled with the immunohistochemistry, confirmed the diagnosis of PRMS metastasizing into inguinal lymph node. Despite of adjuvant radiotherapy and chemotherapy, the patient couldn't survive >3 months and died of widespread lung metastasis.
