4% (Figure 26).

Graph of relapse-free survival of patients with rbabdomyosarcoma of the prostate following treatment with surgery only (9) or S + loeal irradiation (X) and chemotherapy (C). The regional lymph nodes should be evaluated pathologically. Thus, if the original diagnosis was established using a transurethral biopsy, an exploratory laparotomy should be performed prior to the initiation of treatment. In IRS-I, the regional lymph nodes were involved pathologically in 6/12 (5096) patients with primary tumors of the prostate 208.

Radical excision of the tumor has been reported in a few cases, but the tumor generally infiltrates posteriorly and superiorly, making gross total tumor excision not possible. Local tumor control can be achieved with irradiation. The volume of irradiation should include a margin of normal tissue. Direct tumor extension along the extracranial portions of the 5th and 7th cranial nerves may occur. Thus, these areas should be included within the treatment volume. The dose to gross residual disease should be 4500-5000 rads.
