Read the abstract of the medical case
Synovial sarcoma of the
vulva: a case report
Contrary to its name, synovial
sarcoma does not arise from the synovial membrane but from multipotent stem
cells and can present in any part of the body. Very few cases of vulval
synovial sarcoma have been reported in the literature; we report on such a
presentation. These tumors can present as painless lumps, which must be
completely excised to give the best prognosis. Therefore the diagnosis of
synovial sarcoma should always be kept in mind in the management of vulval
masses, especially in young patients.
We report the case of a
28-year-old Caucasian woman with synovial sarcoma of the vulva. Complete
excision was possible in this case.
We have presented a rare case of
synovial sarcoma of the vulva, which can be easily confused with lipoma of the
vulva. The management of this tumor requires referral to a cancer centre, with
a multidisciplinary approach.
