About this work


CT scan of head to show rhabdomyosarcoma orbit. This is a form of rhabdomyosarcoma arising primarily in the head and neck, especially the orbit, of children below the age of 10. The cells are smaller than those of other rhabdomyosarcomas and are of two basic cell types: spindle cells and round cells. This cancer is highly sensitive to chemotherapy and has a high cure rate with multi-modality therapy.
