Abstract: Rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) is a relatively frequent tumor in children. Judicious combinations have markedly improved treatment results in recent years. Orbital localizations are treated with chemotherapy and radiotherapy. It has been advocated that radiotherapy be limited to the original tumor bed. This case report illustrates the danger of shielding part of the orbit: in a clinically tumor-free region before chemotherapy, which was shielded during radiotherapy, a local recurrence was seen while the original tumor bed remained controlled. Therefore, the whole content of the orbit should be irradiated in orbital RMS.
