Skull Base Rhabdomyosarcoma

What is a skull base rhabdomyosarcoma?

Rhabdomyosarcoma is a rare soft-tissue cancer. It can occur in many places in the body, but is often found in the head and neck, especially around the eyes. Rhabdomyosarcomas are most common in children. Certain inherited conditions increase the risk of this disease, including neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1).

To make an appointment or request a consultation, contact the Johns Hopkins Skull Base Tumor Center at 410-614-0585.
