Patient concerns: The patient is a 51-year-old American woman who underwent medical check-up at a general hospital. Upper endoscopy showed a 2-cm sized mass covered with intact mucosa, and a central depression located on the posterior wall of the mid body. Diagnoses: Biopsy of the mass showed focal atypical cells proliferation in mucosa on hematoxylin & eosin (H&E) staining. Endoscopic ultrasound showed a 17-mm homogenously hypoechoic mass within the submucosal layer. After diagnostic endoscopic submucosal dissection was performed, H&E and immunohistochemical staining showed synovial sarcoma (SS). To conﬁrm the diagnosis, reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction was performed, revealing a chimeric transcript of the SYT-SSX1 fusion gene. The diagnosis of primary gastric SS was conﬁrmed because no evidence of possible primary lesions or metastatic lesions was observed. Interventions: The patient underwent distal gastrectomy. Outcomes: After surgery, the surgical specimen demonstrated no residual tumor cells. The patient received no adjuvant therapy, and there has been no evidence of local recurrence or distant metastasis for 2 months after the operation. Lessons: When gastric subepithelial tumor is suspicious, we should also consider gastric SS. Abbreviations: ESD = endoscopic submucosal dissection, RT-PCR = reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction, SS = synovial sarcoma. Keywords: endoscopy, gastric neoplasm, synovial sarcoma The following funding information should appear: Funding: This work was supported by the research promoting grant from the Keimyung University Dongsan Medical Center in 2005 and 2013.
