A rare benign neoplasm arising from the lower female genital tract with skeletal muscle differentiation. It is histologically characterized by the presence of small nucleated eosinophilic rhabdomyoblasts within a fibrous and myxoid stroma.
Genital rhabdomyoma (G-RM) manifests almost exclusively in middleaged women.
