Rhabdomyosarcoma is one of the most common tumors in the pediatric age, but perineal localization is very rare, with a poor prognosis due to late diagnosis. Magnetic resonance (MR) is a non-invasive technique that is very useful in the evaluation of local infiltration and can facilitate the diagnosis. In this article, we present a case of perineal rhabdomyosarcoma diagnosed with pelvic MR, with simultaneous presence of multiple synchronous metastases.
