Adult head and neck rhabdomyosarcoma (AHNRMS) is an exceedingly rare soft-tissue sarcoma (STS). We describe a case of AHNRMS that was initially misdiagnosed as atypical fibroxanthoma (AFX). Rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) is a mesenchymal soft tissue sarcoma that arises from skeletal muscle origin. RMS is most common in the pediatric population, occurring rarely in adults.
