Synovial sarcoma presents as a well-defined entity in its clinical and morphological conditions, its articular location is uncommon, it affects areas with no apparent relation to synovial structures, and it accounts for 5 to 10% of soft tissue sarcomas. Appearing in 66% of cases in soft tissues of the extremities, with a higher incidence in the lower ones close to the large joints, the location in the hands and feet is more infrequent and presents a favorable clinical evolution, appearing between 15 and 40 years of age. We present the case of an adult woman with a tumor mass in the palm of her right hand who underwent an excisional biopsy that reported a diagnosis of synovial sarcoma, closure by second intention and radiotherapy.
