Rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) is an aggressive malignant tumor arising from soft tissue, commonly seen among pediatric age group and mainly located in the head and neck region. It shows variable clinical and biological behaviors and needs individualized management of the lesion. Management of this neoplasm has a great challenge. Early diagnosis and adopting multimodal individualized therapy provide the best outcome. The treatment options of RMS include surgical excision, radiotherapy (RT), and chemotherapy. However, RT in early life is applied cautiously because of its early and late side effects. Here, we present a case of giant RMS in a 1-year-old child showing a huge mass in the oral cavity and right facial area. He had undergone treatment with RT and chemotherapy. The objective of this case report is to describe a case of an embryonal RMS, where the diagnosis is achievable by clinical, radiological, histopathological, and immunohistochemical findings.
