Malignant extrarenal rhabdoid tumor frequently shows co-expression of epithelial, mesenchymal, and neural markers. The tumor cells are usually positive for vimentin (shown here), cytokeratin, and EMA. Markers such as muscle specific actin, smooth muscle actin, CD99, CD57, synaptophysin, and S-100 protein are occasionally expressed.
