Pediatric Robotic Prostatectomy and Pelvic Lymphadenectomy for Embryonal Rhabdomyosarcoma

We present the first published case of a pediatric robot-assisted prostatectomy and pelvic lymphadenectomy for refractory prostatic embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma. The patient is a 7 year old male who had been treated with three cycles of chemotherapy and radiation, who underwent prostatectomy and lymphadenectomy for a recurrent mass. Surgery was uncomplicated and yielded negative surgical margins. We highlight the surgical technique and feasibility of utilizing robotic surgery for pediatric prostatectomy.
