Renal sarcoma represents 1-3% of all renal malignant tumours. Primary rhabdomyosarcoma of the kidney is a rare and highly aggressive tumor in the adult population.

Rhabdomyo sarcoma is a very rare tumor in adults but it needs to be considered in the differential diagnosis among undifferentiated malignant tumors.
