• A patient had two separate adult rhabdomyomas. To our knowledge, this is only the fifth reported example of a patient with multifocal adult rhabdomyomas. A review of the English literature on rhabdomyomas showed a total of only 47 acceptable cases of adult rhabdomyoma. Forty-five of these were in the head and neck region. The adult rhabdomyoma has been confused in the past with granular cell tumors, fetal rhabdomyomas, and rhabdomyosarcomas. Its separation from these tumors is indicated.
