Pathology of Primary Monophasic Synovial Sarcoma of the Lung

Dr Sampurna Roy MD




This is a newly recognized entity in the lung.

The size varies from 1 to 20 cm. and is grossly whitish-tan, rubbery tumour with a homogenous cut surface. There are areas of hemorrhage and/or necrosis.

Histologically, the tumour is composed of fascicles of monotonous atypical spindle cells, arranged in a "herringbone" pattern.

Biologic behavior is similar to lesions in the soft tissue. The relative absence of biphasic cases reported to date most likely reflects their overall lower incidence in lung.
