Rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) is the most common soft tissue sarcoma in children. Recent work presented in this issue of Cancer Cell by Fleischmann et al. on gene knockout mice revealed a remarkable molecular pathway for rhabdomyosarcomagenesis, in which Trp53/Fos double mutant mice developed RMS of the facial and orbital regions with high penetrance. This finding may provide novel molecular mechanisms for Rhabdomyosarcomagenesis and therapeutic implications for RMS patients.
