Rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) is a malignant tumor frequently seen in childhood. It is characterized by high biological aggression, fast growth, and early metastatic capacity of the lymph and hematopoietic system. The RMS is frequently localized in the area of the head, neck, trunk and limbs. It is rarely found in abdominal organs and tissues. They are in the group of high risk. A clinical case of mesenteric root RMS in a 2.5-year-old with histologically proven RMS of the abdomen is presented. During the preoperative angiography (total abdominal and mesentericography) the neoplasm was found to affect the major vessels. The water jet dissector used during a surgery enabled to select the mesenteric root vessels and perform radical resection of the ileum affected by the tumor. No complications were reported.
