Abstract

A 25-year-old woman, a known case of vulvar rhabdomyosarcoma presented with bilateral breast nodules. Fine needle aspiration was performed. The smears revealed numerous round malignant cells, positive for malignancy. Histopathologic and immunocytochemical examination confirmed the diagnosis of metastatic alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma. The cytological findings of alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma of the breast are rarely reported. The clinical history and immunocytochemical study contributed to the diagnosis of metastatic alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma.
