MARRUGO-PARDO, Gilberto Eduardo; RESTREPO-ANGEL, Fabio; CABRERA-BERNAL, Edgar Vladimir  and  SIERRA-AVILA, Andrea del Pilar. Ear rhabdomyosarcoma: Fundacion Hospital de la Misericordia Experience. [online]. 2013, vol.61, n.1, pp.71-75. ISSN 0120-0011.

The rhabdomiosarcoma is the third most frequent extracraneal solid tumor in childhood and is the most frequent sarcoma in this age group. 1/3 of these comprise the head and neck area, and only 4% are present in the middle ear as its primary site. The Fundación Hospital de La Misericordia (HOMI) is a 4th level hospital committed with the attention of pediatric population and it is a national referral center for the management of high complexity pathologies. We will make a revision of ear rhabdomiosarcoma at our institution and a review of the literature to socialize symptoms and pronostic factors in Colombia.

Keywords : Rhabdomyosarcoma; neoplasms; ear neoplasms.
