A case of a 2-year-old boy with rhabdomyosarcoma of the tongue diagnosed 19 years ago is described. The therapeutic approach has included high dose radiation therapy and chemotherapy and has eventually been successful despite two episodes of pulmonary relapse. An unusually long follow-up has allowed to detect the appearance and the evolution of several important side effects over a number of organs and functions. The multifactorial reasons of the severe late effects are presented and discussed.
