Synovial sarcoma is a highly malignant tumor affecting mostly extremities of young adult. The nasal location represents less than 1% cases. Only a few sporadic cases have been reported. Its treatment is not well established. Case report: We report the case of a synovial sarcoma of nasal cavity in a 16 years old patient characterized by its recurrent character being controlled by a treatment combining surgery and chemoradiotherapy. Discussion: We will discuss the various radio-clinical, histological and therapeutic
particularities referring to a literature review.
