Abstract:   (973 Views)
Synovial Sarcoma (SS) is a rare and aggressive sarcoma that usually occurs around the knee joint; it rarely involves the hand. Joint involvement by SS is extremely rare. We report a case of wrist intraarticular SS presenting with chronic wrist pain. The patient underwent surgical excision alongside with local radiotherapy and chemotherapy. After 24 months of follow up, there was no recurrence or metastasis. Intraarticular SS should be in a differential diagnosis list of chronic wrist pain even though it is extremely rare.
