We report a child with a progressive ''solid alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma'' in whom analysis of tumor cells revealed a t(2;13) translocation characteristic of the classical alveolar subtype. Both subtypes of alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma are associated with a poor response to treatment and the occurrence of this translocation in both is suggestive of a common biologic origin.
