Fig5: A 6-year-old boy with a mass in the left scrotum. US image shows an ill-defined heterogeneous mass surrounding the testis (open arrow). The mass shows increased flow (solid arrow). Histopathology: embryonal RMS

Mentions: On US, RMS in general shows as a well-defined, slightly hypoechoic inhomogeneous mass that can show significantly increased flow (Fig. 5). In the particular case of paratesticular RMS, US is the imaging modality of choice, although CT of the abdomen is also necessary to evaluate for retroperitoneal lymphadenopathy. In all other RMS locations additional imaging using CT or MRI is mandatory.Fig. 5
