Prostate rhabdomyosarcoma is rare in adults. It is characterized by a high degree of aggressiveness, rapid local growth with the formation of large pelvic masses, often leading to urethral obstruction, and systemic spread, commonly to the lungs, liver, and bone. A 23-year-old male was referred to our department with symptoms of acute retention of urine, hematuria and constipation. He was earlier admitted in another hospital, wherein he was catheterized, evaluated and underwent both transurethral as well as transrectal biopsy of the prostate. Our case was clinically advanced, and chemotherapy treatment seemed adequate to control the disease, and reduce the symptoms and improve the quality of life.
