ABSTRACT


Malignant rhabdoid tumor (MRT) of the mediastinum is an aggressive tumor that is extremely rare. To date, only 24 cases of the mediastinal MRT have been reported in adults and 9 cases in the pediatric age group under the age of 18 years. We report a rare case of such tumor and review the literature on its clinical and imaging features as well as its treatment and prognostic outcomes.
