    Rhabdomyomas are rare benign tumours originating in skeletal or cardiac muscle. Extracardiac tumours are usually situated in the head and neck. Four cases are presented, three arising in the larynx and the other in the cervical region. All four cases were studied by light and electron microscopy, and in three immunohistochemical staining for myoglobin, desmin, and vimentin was carried out to study the diagnostic features of the lesions and their histogenesis.
