Bottom Line: Pelvic ultrasound (US) examination, computed tomography (CT), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) demonstrated an 8.5 cm mass that appeared to originate in the prostatic fascia of the right lobe.Preoperative prostatic ultrasound transrectal needle biopsy revealed mesenchymal neoplastic tissue.The final pathologic findings were consistent with the diagnosis of monophasic synovial sarcoma.

ABSTRACT
Synovial sarcoma (SS) primarily occurs in the para-articular soft tissue of the lower extremities in young adults and it is extremely rare in the prostatic region. We report a case of a 46-year-old man who presented with urinary retention. Pelvic ultrasound (US) examination, computed tomography (CT), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) demonstrated an 8.5 cm mass that appeared to originate in the prostatic fascia of the right lobe. Preoperative prostatic ultrasound transrectal needle biopsy revealed mesenchymal neoplastic tissue. Patient underwent surgery. The final pathologic findings were consistent with the diagnosis of monophasic synovial sarcoma.

Mentions: The fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) test for t(X;18)(p11q11) was positive showing splitting of the fluorescent signal consistent with a rearrangement involving SYT (Figure 5). The pathologic findings were consistent with the diagnosis of monophasic synovial sarcoma, with positive surgical margins.
