Malignant rhabdoid tumor is a well-established clinicopathologic entity occurring classically
in the kidney and central nervous system in children. Cutaneous origin has rarely been
reported. We herein report a male newborn infant presented with an erythematous and ulcerated
mass on his lower back at birth and was found to be a malignant rhabdoid tumor, diagnosed by
histopathologic and immunohistochemical studies. In spite of aggressive treatment with chemotherapy
and surgery, cerebral and pulmonary metastases developed later. The patient fi nally died
at 10 months of age. This rare case is reported and literatures are reviewed.
