Abstract

  Synovial sarcoma is an uncommon malignant mesenchymal neoplasm that usually occurs in extremities. Rarely have they been reported in the head and neck, pericardium, lungs, liver, and retroperitoneum. The term synovial sarcoma is a misnomer because the tumor doesn’t arise from synovial tissue. It was once believed to recapitulate synovium, but the cell of origin is still unclear. We report a case of synovial sarcoma of the liver in a 55-year-old male, presented to our hospital with a history of abdominal discomfort and weight loss.
