Abstract

A 20-month-old child with systemic features of neurofibromatosis type 1 presented with sudden-onset proptosis. Biopsy and histopathology confirmed the diagnosis of an embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma. The tumor regressed completely with chemotherapy and external beam radiotherapy. This case highlights the association of rhabdomyosarcoma with neurofibromatosis type 1.
