An approach to pleomorphic sarcomas: can we subclassify, and does it matter&quest
JR Goldblum - Modern Pathology, 2014
... Pleomorphic rhabdomyosarcoma is recognized by the presence of large cells with eosinophilic
cytoplasm and cross striations (Figure 4), which can be confirmed by the immunohistochemical
demonstration of skeletal muscle differentiation (desmin, MyoD1, myogenin). ...

types of human malignant cancers, including lung cancer , rhabdomyosarcoma
, endometrial carcinoma  and breast cancer . ...
Novel uses of immunohistochemistry in the diagnosis and classification of soft tissue tumors
JL Hornick - Modern Pathology, 2014

to confirm the presence of heterologous rhabdomyoblastic differentiation in other tumor types
(eg, dedifferentiated liposarcoma and malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor). ...

... composite rhabdoid tumors (that is, other neoplastic types with rhabdoid morphology) (c). With
increased use of SMARCB1 immunohistochemistry, however, it has become apparent that some
'true' composite rhabdoid tumors exist, such as this rhabdomyosarcoma with rhabdoid ...
