Abstract

Synovial sarcomas comprise about 8% of all tumours of somatic soft-tissues, and are the most common sarcomas of the 'hands and feet. Occasionally they may occur in the trunk, but they have rarely been reported in the neck. We present a case of cervical soft-tissue mass producing symptoms in a 12-year-old-boy. This mass could be defined partially by radiological techniques, but its nature was not suspected because of its rarity in children and particularly in view of its unusual site.
