Rhabdomyosarcoma is a soft tissue malignant musculoskeletal tumor.
It is a rare tumor in children but the most common cause of malignant obstructive
jaundice in them.We present two cases of
children who presented to us with obstructive jaundice and palpable
liver. They were misdiagnosed as choledochal cyst on imaging studies; however,
intraoperative and histopathological features confirmed the diagnosis of
rhabdomyosarcoma. Mass excision and Roux en Y portoenterostomy was performed. Post
operatively, the patients were put on multimodal chemotherapy. This, being an
uncommon entity, is being reported with a review of the available literature.
