Synovial Sarcoma (SS) is a rare mesenchymal neoplasm arising commonly from the periarticular tissue. Primary SS involving the lung accounts for less than 0.5% of all lung tumours. SS are high grade aggressive tumours affecting the extremities of adolescents and young adults. Clinically, patient presents with cough, breathing difficulty, chest pain or haemoptysis and imaging studies may reveal a mass lesion but for definitive diagnosis, histopathology and immunohistochemical examination is needed. Hereby, authors report a case of 39-year-old female diagnosed with primary pulmonary SS with particular emphasis on the pathologic findings.
