Rhabdomyosarcoma is a soft tissue neoplasm arising from primitive embryonal mesenchyma. Embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma mostly affects children younger than 10 years of age, but it also occurs in adolescents and young adults. Pleomorphic rhabdomyosarcoma is a rare variant that almost always arises in adults older than 45 years of age. Mesentery is a rare site for botyroid embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma and on extensive search we found only one case of a botryoid rhabdomyosarcoma in a child of 2 years. We report a rare case of botyroid embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma occurring in the mesentery of a 30 year old female.
