Abstract

SOBRAL, Hernán Augusto Centurión et al. Sarcoma sinovial anorretal: relato de caso. Rev bras. colo-proctol. [online]. 2006, vol.26, n.1, pp. 65-67. ISSN 0101-9880.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-98802006000100009.

Originated from mesenchymal cells, the sarcoma is rare in the anorectal area. The authors report a case of anorectal sinovial sarcoma, extremely rare in this location with no previous reports on literature. It's described a case of a 77 years old patient presenting an anal tumor, associated to pain, bleeding, tenesmus and weight loss. A synovial sarcoma was diagnosed after biopsy and imunohistochemical study. The pacient was submitted to a Miles procedure being assymptomatic and without any signs of disease in the last seven months.
