The authors present a woman's case (age 50), who was hospitalised several times as she often had pain in her left leg and knee for one year. The pain increased in the last 2 months. The final diagnosis, the primer synovial sarcoma of the left knee was justified only post mortem. Not only this alteration in the knee caused the pain in the left leg. The symptoms of sciatic pain caused by lumbal discus herniation also occurred which made the diagnosis more difficult. Referring to relevant data in literature the authors analyse the differential diagnostic aspects of the final diagnosis and the clinical spectrum of the illness.
