Synovial Sarcoma

DEFINITION AND PATHOGENESIS

  • Aka Synovial Cell Sarcoma, synoviosarcoma, malignant synovioma
  • Often a biphasic tumor composed of epithelial and fibrous components forming "clefts" histogically (name derived from this synovium-like appearance)

IMPORTANCE

  • 4th most common soft tissue sarcoma after HGPUS, liposarcoma, and rhabdomyosarcoma
  • Represents 36% of nonrhabdomyosarcoma soft tissue sarcomas in children (most common)
  • Most common soft tissue sarcoma of the hand in some reports (epithelioid sarcoma in others)
  • Most common soft tissue sarcoma associated with calcification
  • Has been reported associated with a previously placed THA
  • Has been reported after intraarterial perfusion of doxorubicin for osteosarcoma
  • Has been reported (paraspinal) after radiation in pediatric abdominal neuroblastoma

CLINICAL FEATURES

  • Usually occurs within 7cm of a joint, but uncommon to be intra-articular (<5%)
  • Most prevalent between 15-40 years (average age 35)
  • M:F = 1.2:1
  • Pain associated with the deep seated mass in 50%, not uncommonly present for 2-4 years
    • Carpal tunnel syndrome has been a presenting finding in volar wrist location
  • Most commonly located around the knee
  • Unusual locations
    • Frontal sinus
    • Tongue
    • Tonsil
    • Parapharyngeal
    • Larynx
    • Trachea

  • Tumor-induced hypercalcemia
    • (18.3 mg/dl) has been reported
    • [Ca++] normalized with bisphosphonates and after resection
  • Has been reported in the same limb as a 14-year-old boy with osteofibrous dysplasia
  • Has been reported associated 12 yrs after a Charnley-Müller THA with polyethylene cup and PMMA

RADIOLOGIC FEATURES

  • Rounded or oval soft tissue density, with up to 20-30% having focal calcification (often in periphery of tumor) or ossification on x-rays, with periosteal reaction or cortical erosion (11-20%) if in a juxtacortical location
  • Angiogram shows prominent vascular blush

    • ? changes compatible with previous hemorrhage (>40%)
    • Fluid-fluid levels (10-25%) corresponding to spread of hemorrhage
    • Soft tissue calcifications appear as areas of ? signal intensity on all pulse sequences

  • SYT-SSX1 gene product (SYT-SSX2 has a better prognosis)
  • ? metastasis-free survival rage
  • ? overall survival rate
  • Wide to radical resection is indicated ? XRT
  • Chemotherapy, esp in poorly differentiated lesions, lesions > 5cm in size, and SYT-SSX1 gene product
    • German and Italian Pediatric Soft Tissue Sarcoma Cooperative Groups between 1975-2002 gave rhabdomyosarcoma chemotherapeutic protocols to pediatric pts with synovial sarcoma without noted assessable benefit
