Abstract

Pulmonary synovial sarcoma of lung is an extraordinarily rare tumor among the primary malignancies of lung. The establishment of diagnosis of primary pulmonary synovial sarcoma entails clinical, radiological and pathological investigations for confirmation and exclusion of alternative primary tumours and metastatic sarcomas of lung. Our case, a 18 year old female, showed spindle cell tumour on trucut biopsy and stained positive for B- cell lymphoma- 2 (BCL-2), Epithelial Membrane Antigen (EMA), calponin and vimentin whereas it stained negative for CD34 and cytokeratin 7. So, the diagnosis of primary pulmonary synovial sarcoma was endorsed.

Keywords: Primary pulmonary synovial sarcoma, Immunohistochemistry, Tru-cut biopsy, Rare, BCL-2, EMA.
