DOI : 10.26663/cts.2019.00019 Viewed : 48 - Downloaded : 19 A 33-year-old male patient was complaining about shoulder pain and swelling in his neck. The computed tomography of the patient revealed a mass lesion extending from the supraclavicular region to the upper level of the aortic arch. The patient was operated with the Grunenwald incision approaching from the anterior. The mass was separated from the tissues and totally excised. The histopathological examination reported a biphasic synovial sarcoma. Here we evaluated a very rare case of primary synovial sarcoma in the context of the literature, localized at the thoracic inlet and excised by the Grunenwald incision.
