Bisogno G, Ferrari A, Prete A, et al. [162,163] Aggressive alternative therapy is not warranted for patients with rhabdomyosarcoma who have a residual mass at the end of planned therapy unless it has biopsy-proven residual malignant disease. [68], In the extremities and select truncal sites, sentinel lymph node evaluation is a more accurate form of diagnosis than is random regional lymph node sampling. The authors have reported the case of a 66-year-old woman with a 35-year history of heavy cigarette smoking and daily alcohol consumption and a 2-month history of progressive dysphagia and dysarthria secondary to an enlarging tongue mass. Since resistances to ADM-based chemotherapy and toxicity from doxorubicin are frequently observed in clinical practice, we investigated the association between CREB3L1 expression and survival in advanced soft-tissue sarcomas patients treated with doxorubicin-based palliative chemotherapy. : Delayed primary excision with subsequent modification of radiotherapy dose for intermediate-risk rhabdomyosarcoma: a report from the Children's Oncology Group Soft Tissue Sarcoma Committee.

There were no complete or partial remissions; 4 patients had stable disease, and 11 patients had progressive disease. Vern-Gross TZ, Indelicato DJ, Bradley JA, et al. [144], Two well-documented cases of primary ovarian rhabdomyosarcoma (one Stage III and one Stage IV) have been reported to supplement the eight previously reported patients. The VIT arm was associated with higher response rates (44% vs. 31%), improved PFS (4.7 months vs. 3.2 months), improved OS (15 months vs. 10.3 months), and a higher incidence of grade 3 and grade 4 toxicities. Pediatr Blood Cancer 66 (6): e27652, 2019. Malempati S, Rodeberg DA, Donaldson SS, et al. good despite residual disease after surgery. Occasionally, patients with histology consistent with alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma do not have one of the two gene fusions that are characteristic of the disease. In the IRS-IV study, the Group III patients with localized unresectable disease who were treated with chemotherapy and radiation therapy had a 5-year FFS rate of about 75% and a local control rate of 87%.[49]. : Treatment of nonmetastatic rhabdomyosarcoma in childhood and adolescence: third study of the International Society of Paediatric Oncology--SIOP Malignant Mesenchymal Tumor 89. The mean overall survival for, those presenting with metastatic disease was 18, Though uncommon in adults, rhabdomyosarcoma tends to be, more aggressive and more resistant to chemotherapy than its child-, The current guidelines for treating adult rhabdo, myosarcoma are nonetheless based on the multimodality approach. The surgical management of patients with lesions of the chest wall or abdominal Dasgupta R, Fuchs J, Rodeberg D: Rhabdomyosarcoma. Unfavorable-risk patients without measurable disease, no radiographic response, or refusal to go on window therapy received 31 weeks of multiagent chemotherapy plus tirapazamine.[. Rodeberg DA, Stoner JA, Garcia-Henriquez N, et al. [46] This was not confirmed by a COG study of patients with intermediate-risk rhabdomyosarcoma. [147,166,167] Two retrospective studies have examined patients who present with metastases limited to the lungs;[146,147] results are summarized in the Metastatic sites section of this summary. The alveolar subtype is more prevalent among patients with less favorable 5-year survival rates. Evidence (chemotherapy for high-risk Group patients): Analysis identified several adverse prognostic factors (Oberlin risk factors): The EFS rate at 3 years depended on the number of adverse prognostic factors:[168][Level of evidence: 3iiiA]. : Long-term results in children with head and neck rhabdomyosarcoma: A report from the Italian Soft Tissue Sarcoma Committee. Nat Genet 37 (10): 1038-40, 2005. Urla C, Warmann SW, Sparber-Sauer M, et al. The authors concluded that for patients with Group III orbital embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma achieving a CR after VAC chemotherapy that includes modest-dose cyclophosphamide, 45 Gy of radiation may be sufficient for durable FFS. The complete remission (CR) rate was 69% in Clinical Group III and 50% in IV, with no statistically significant difference in CR rates between treatments in either group. surgical intervention for vaginal rhabdomyosarcoma, with primary chemotherapy a worse outcome than in similar patients with embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma. : the experience of the Italian Cooperative Group studies.

Gurney JG, Young JL Jr, Roffers SD, et al. Eight patients with local recurrences had tumors larger than 5 cm at diagnosis, and the COG. Dosing was delayed as necessary for toxicity. Treatment– Surgical extirpation is the treatment of choice for rhabdomyosarcoma depending upon the location of the tumor and the rate of metastasis. Also, PET-CT suggested nodal involvement in 14 patients, whereas only 4 of those were proven to have metastatic disease. Of the 7 patients with nonmetastatic disease, 6 had no evidence of disease posttreatment, but 1 died of myelodysplastic syndrome after 51 months. Cancer Discov 4 (2): 216-31, 2014. When combined with surgery and radiation therapy, chemotherapy using doxorubicin, ifosfamide, and vincristine yielded 55% overall and 64% disease-free survival at 2 years. their initial excisional procedure appear to have improved prognoses if a In the IRS-I and IRS-II studies, the alveolar subtype was [5] However, after adjusting for primary site, resection, and metastatic status, there was no difference in EFS by histologic subtype. Lyon, France: IARC Press, 2013. In pilot 1, patients received intravenous cixutumumab (3, 6, or 9 mg/kg) once weekly throughout therapy.

Some patients received initial RT for local control of residual disease after induction chemotherapy, while others had it later, or not at all if no demonstrable disease was found. Minard-Colin V, Walterhouse D, Bisogno G, et al. Wide surgical resection, was undertaken regardless of metastatic status, aiming to render, patients free of local disease at the site of the primary lesion. Staging of rhabdomyosarcoma is complex. However, for patients with less than a CR who were treated with the ARST0331 systemic therapy, a radiation dose of 50.4 Gy or a higher dose of cyclophosphamide may be needed to achieve the control rate reported in the IRS-IV trial.

[163] While induction chemotherapy is commonly administered for 9 to 12 weeks, 2.2% of patients with intermediate-risk rhabdomyosarcoma on the IRS-IV and COG-D9803 studies were found to have early disease progression and did not receive their planned course of RT. J Urol 176 (5): 2190-4; discussion 2194-5, 2006. EFS was significantly better for patients with localized tumors than for those with metastatic lesions (64% v. 13%, P < 0.0001). sites have localized disease that is unresectable at diagnosis but may become amenable to resection with OS at 5 years was 21%.
