Synovial sarcoma arising from the hypopharynx: a case report

Çetin Vural1, Aslı Batur Çalış, Bilge Bilgiç, Misten Demiryont, Aras Şenvar

Synovial sarcoma is a relatively rare soft tissue tumor.
About 3 to 10% of cases arise in the head and neck,
with the majority in the parapharyngeal region. We
hereby report a 22-year-old male patient with synovial
sarcoma confined to the hypopharynx. Treatment
included wide surgical excision followed by radiotherapy.
It is of interest that the lesion recurred 12 years
after the initial primary surgery for synovial sarcoma
at the same site. The patient has been disease-free
for five years.
