Synovial sarcoma of the soft tissue are named so not because of synovial origin but because of the microscopic appearance of their degenerated mesenchymal cells that is very similar to synovial tissue.6 Their appearance near large joints usually present with local pain, swelling and walking abnormality which may initially be misinterpreted as bursitis, lipoma or myosarcoma. They involve the head and neck region in only 3% of the cases,4,5 with features of throat pain, dysphagia or dyspnoea, with involvement of the spine limited to only case reports so far in the literature.7-9 Not surprisingly, in case of the spinal involvement, features of spinal cord compression, neurogenic pain and radiculopathy, are encountered which add to the neurological differential diagnoses of the rarity list.
