Rhabdomyosarcoma is the most common soft tissue malignancy found in children,1 accounting for 50% of pediatric soft tissue sarcomas.1 Approximately 40% to 50% of these tumors manifest in the head and neck,1 with 7% involving the temporal bone.2 Rhabdomyosarcoma is also recognized as the most common aural malignancy of children3; therefore, any mass found in the ear of a child thus merits consideration of possible rhabdomyosarcoma.
