Synovial sarcoma (SS) is a malignant tumor of pluripotent/undifferentiated cells. Only 3% of all SSs are found in the neck. We present a case of a 16-year-old male presenting neck swelling for 6 months which was diagnosed as biphasic SS of the neck on fine-needle aspiration cytology. Complete surgical resection with lateral partial pharyngectomy was done followed by postoperative radiotherapy. We also present the recent reviews on diagnosis and management on SS of head and neck.
