First Recurrence of Synovial Sarcoma Presenting With Solitary Pancreatic Mass. Cureus Narayan, R. R., Charville, G. W., Delitto, D., Ganjoo, K. N. 2022; 14 (6): e26356


Synovial sarcoma usually presents in the lower extremities and metastasizes to the lungs; however, unusual patterns of recurrence can occur. For patients with recurrent synovial sarcoma to a proximal peripancreatic lymph node, a pancreaticoduodenectomy or Whipple procedure is the best option for a cure. Lymph node metastasis from synovial sarcoma is exceptionally rare, and data guiding the use of the Whipple procedure for curative resection of metastatic synovial sarcoma are even more sparse. In this report, we describe the management of a patient with metastatic synovial sarcoma to a proximal peripancreatic lymph node with a pancreaticoduodenectomy.
