Abstract

We had reported a 47 years old male patient who presented to us with scanty hemoptysis since five days with chest X-ray showing left upper zone opacity.While investigating for the cause, a 124mm×100mm×147mm sized lesion in left upper lobe was found on contrast enhanced computed tomography and a diagnois of pulmonary metastasis from a synovial sarcoma by histology and immunohistochemistry was made.This case highlights the occurance of solitary metastasis into lung by synovial sarcoma.Such presentations are common in young adults with cough, chest pain, shortness of breath, or hemoptysis, with a mass on X-ray and computerized tomography scan.
