Vulvar cancer is the fifth gynecological cancer after that of the breast, cervix, uterus, and ovaries. The most common histological type is epidermoid carcinoma. But, the vulva, defined histologically by the set of several tissues (cutaneous, glandular, adipocytes, muscular, mucous) can undergo several modifications resulting in lesions of multiple histological nature that might be rare like the synovial sarcoma of the vulva. Few cases have been reported in the literature. Despite this terminology, the Synovial Sarcoma (SS) is not synovial origin, but is derived from multipotent stem cells capable of differentiating into mesenchymal and epithelial cells. The median age at diagnosis is 50 years old, and the most common symptom is a local discomfort or pain during sex. These lesions are often wrongly diagnosed as cysts or Bartholin abscess. The therapeutic management of synovial sarcoma is primarily surgical with wider excision of the lesion with healthy tissue margins. The prognosis is poor. The average rate of locoregional recurrence or metastasis of SS at two years is 50%. The most frequent metastatic sites are the regional lymph nodes, lung, bone and liver. We report the case of a 40-year-old woman with synovial sarcoma of the vulva. The management of this tumor requires multidisciplinary approach.
