Extrarenal rhabdoid tumor is a rare malignancy of infants and children, typically presenting in the soft tissue of deep, axial locations. We describe a rare dermal presentation of congenital extrarenal rhabdoid tumor in the left paraspinal region of a 6-month-old girl with germline deletion of chromosome 22q11.21q11.23. This case demonstrates that like other rhabdoid tumors, the SMARCB1 gene is also responsible for cutaneous extrarenal rhabdoid tumor oncogenesis.
