Synovial sarcoma is a malignant soft tissue tumor which commonly occurs in the young adult in the extremities. A few cases of the primary synovial sarcoma have been reported in the uncommon sites in the world literature. We report a case of primary synovial sarcoma arising from the peritoneum. This was about a 47-year old male who presented with abdominal fullness and pain. Abdominal ultrasound revealed a large hypoechoic tumor which was confirmed by computer tomography.
Surgery was performed. The tumor originated from the peritoneum, the morphology and immunochemical stains confirmed the diagnosis of biphasic synovial sarcoma. We represent the first case of primary synovial sarcoma arising from the peritoneum.
