Among the wide variety of soft-tissue malignancy subtypes, synovial sarcoma (SS) has always been deemed a rare tumour. While extremities are the main target of this tumour, it can affect any other body region including the head and neck. We reported a case of a male in his third decade who presented to the emergency department with breathing difficulty due to a huge neck mass. After securing the airways by a challenging tracheostomy and a full workout, histopathology results came as SS. The huge size of the mass, its histopathological type and its life-threatening presentation urged us to present this case report and review the literature.
