Synovial sarcomas (SSs) are very rare, poorly studied tumors that generally occurs around joint and muscle tendons. Primary SSs of the kidney are even rarer, accounting for <2% of all malignant renal tumors. We report the case of a 44-year-old man who was diagnosed with primary renal SS on the basis of imaging, histopathological, and immunohistochemical examination. We also present a comprehensive review of the literature, with a focus on the differential diagnosis and treatment of renal tumors.
