In this review of 55 children with non-metastatic rhabdomyosarcoma, 28 patients (51%) received a radiation therapy cone-down boost with a median relative reduction in the high-dose treatment volume of 56% (range, 5%-91%). The local control rate was 91% with no recognized detriment to the receipt of reduced volume RT; however, in the subset of patients with parameningeal rhabdomyosarcoma and intracranial tumor extension, 4 patients (30%) who received reduced volume RT experienced leptomeningeal failure as their first site of disease progression.
