Abstract

Extrarenal malignant rhabdoid tumors (MRT) are extremely rare. There have been only a few cases of MRT described in the literature and even fewer in the radiology literature. We present rare uterine and hepatic MRT and their computed tomography, magnetic resonance, and ultrasound imaging features with histopathologic correlation. Although the final diagnosis is based largely on histopathology, radiologists should include MRT in their differential considerations, regardless of tumor location, when they are dealing with an extremely aggressive tumor of early childhood.
