Abstract

Rhabdomyosarcoma of the biliary tree is a rare cause of biliary tract obstruction in childhood. A 3-year-old child is reported here after presenting with obstructive jaundice secondary to an embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma of the ampulla of Vater. He underwent pancreaticoduodenectomy followed by adjuvant chemotherapy and irradiation. He is now well and free of disease 5 years following treatment. This child appears to be the first long-term survivor who has required pancreaticoduodenal resection for this lesion.
