I would like to know the definition of "rhabdoid changes", please. It is used in connection with a malignant liver tumour in a 10week old baby boy.
Thank you.

Zechino, rhabdoid means rod shaped or resembling a rod. In this case it probably means that there were rod-like changes in the cell. It doesn’t refer to a prognosis or seriousness of the tumour. Good luck.
