A case of biphasic synovial sarcoma has been studied with histochemical and immunohistochemical methods. Synovial sarcoma is a frequent soft tissue tumor not always simple to discriminate from other epithelial and stromal tumors. The variability of the anatomical site and the different growth patterns can diagnostic problems. Moreover, immunohistochemical methods can be of some aid and, without the possibility to perform a chromosomic diagnosis, traditional histochemical methods are also useful. Finally, the pathologist must know that recurrences or metastases may show a different pattern than the primary neoplasm.
