Malignant neoplasms of the breast are rare in children and represent less than 1 percent of all neoplasms in those under 20 years of age. The occurance of rhabdomysarcoma as a primary tumor in the breast is uncommon. We describe a twelve year old girl who presented with primary embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma of the breast. She underwent conservative surgery, received combination chemotherapy and radiotherapy. The child is alive and disease free at 45 months with good cosmesis of the breast. The literature on primary rhabdomyosarcoma of the breast is reviewed.
