A 9-year-old female presented with fever, cough, and hemoptysis for a week. The chest skiagram and contrast-enhanced computerized tomography delineated a well-defined solid lesion localized to the superior segment of the right lower lobe with features of a congenital pulmonary airway malformation. The lesion was surgically managed with a segmentectomy and histopathology confirmed a contained pulmonary rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS). No other primary site of origin was evident, and a final diagnosis of "primary" pulmonary RMS was made. She received adjuvant chemotherapy and was disease free after 6 years of surveillance. The unique clinicoradiological features of the case are discussed and the sparse literature is reviewed.
