• Synovial sarcoma is a rare neoplasm that uncommonly arises in the neck. Fourteen years after facial and neck radiation therapy for acne, synovial sarcoma of the neck developed in a young man. Possible radiation-induced benign and malignant neoplasms that arise in the head and neck region, either of thyroid or extrathyroid origin, remain a continuing medical problem.
