Monophasic synovial sarcoma of the pharynx: a case report

By Dibendu Betal, Ramesh Babu and Veysi Mehmet

Abstract

Synovial sarcomas are a rare form of soft tissue sarcomas. We present a case of a 62 year-old male presenting with a left thyroid lump initially though to be a thyroid adenoma but subsequently diagnosed as a monophasic synovial sarcoma of the pharynx. We discuss the diagnosis and treatment of this case
