Abstract

Aberrant activation of the hedgehog (Hh) signaling pathway is implicated widely in both pediatric and adult malignancies. Inactivation of the Hh regulator PTCH is responsible for the Gorlin cancer predisposition syndrome. The spectrum of tumors found in Gorlin Syndrome includes basal cell carcinoma, medulloblastoma, and rarely, rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS). A previous report utilizing in situ hybridization has provided initial evidence for the expression of Hh targets GLI1 and PTCH in RMS tumors.
