Abstract YO32

Case summary

Prostatic rhabdomyosarcoma in adult is a uncommon disease of adult. There are few cases reported as adult rhabdomyosarcoma of prostate. Most of the cases present with advanced stage. Modality of treatment vary from that of pediatric counterpart. Moreover stage wise treatment for adult disease are not well defined. We presented a young adult case of rhabdomyosarcoma presented with acute retention of urine and severe lower abdominal pain. After evaluation we thought of prostatic rhabdomyosarcoma which was later confirmed by IHC study. As the case was metastatic during presentation panel of experts recommend neoadjuvant chemotherapy followed by surgery according to the response of the treatment. There is no clear treatment plan recommendation for this advance stage, but we planned to evaluate Doxorubicin and Ifosphamide regimen for clinical trial. Surprisingly the systemic therapy works and after 3 cycle there was a very small residue persist. After almost complete response we recommended to continue further 3 cycle. Though surgery and radiation therapy Is the mainstay of treatment we can recommend neoadjuvant chemotherapy for metastatic rhabdomyosarcoma of prostate in adult from our clinical experience.
