  • BACKGROUND: Synovial sarcoma (SS) is a mesenchymal malignancy, which predominantly occurs at the lower extremities of young adults.
  • METHODS: A retrospective chart review (years 2002 - 2006) of our Department of Otorhinolaryngology, head and neck surgery, School of Medicine, Bonn, Germany, was performed searching for patients with primary head and neck manifestations of SS.
  • The histological diagnosis was a biphasic SS as well as a monophasic SS in 2 patients respectively.
  • 2 patients were in complete remission at the recent follow-up, 1 patient died 14 months after diagnosis due to a lethal carotidal haemorrhage.
  • The genetic translocation t(X;18) leads the way to the right diagnosis.
