Abstract

Pulmonary synovial sarcoma is a rare disease, and reports detailing clinicians' radiological findings are few. We report a case of a primary pulmonary synovial sarcoma in a 68-year-old woman. Chest CT revealed a well-defined and homogeneous oval mass measuring 3×2.5 cm in the left lower lobe in contact with the visceral pleura. No pleural effusion was evident. No calcification or fat component was detected. The tumor showed homogeneous hypointensity on both T1- and T2-weighted MR imaging. In this case, a lung metastasis could be excluded with fluorine-18 fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET), and the final diagnosis was histopathologically confirmed by the chimeric gene detection.
