Abstract

Postradiation sarcomas are rare, and the most commonly reported ones are malignant fibrous histiocytoma, osteosarcoma, angiosarcoma, fibrosarcoma, malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor, and high-grade pleomorphic sarcoma, not otherwise specified. There are a few case reports of postradiation rhabdomyosarcomas following treatment of retinoblastoma, breast cancer, endometrial adenocarcinoma, and Hodgkin's disease. Secondary neoplasms following radiation and surgical treatment of rectal adenocarcinomas have not been reported in the English literature. We report a case of pleomorphic rhabdomyosarcoma of the anterior abdominal wall following treatment of rectal carcinoma, and we review the literature.
