In brief: Rhabo's are
Unusual pediatric tumors, commonly located in or near the genito-urinary tract or in the head and neck region.
They arise in "un-named" muscles. They respond to chemotherapy and are also treated in combination with radiotherapy. They are most common under five, and almost always under 10.
