Abstract Sarcomas are connective tissue tumours, and can arise in any part of the body, more commonly in the extremities. Histological types and clinical presentation of truncal sarcomas are similar to those seen in any other anatomic locations. Radiological investigations may be contributory, but biopsy is conclusive. Surgical resection with wide margins is the initial standard treatment, however a multimodal approach including radiotherapy and chemotherapy is often favoured. Because of the high recurrence rate regardless of therapy, close follow-up is imperative. We present a case of synovial sarcoma of the anterior abdominal wall.
