Among all patients with primary intrathoracic synovial sarcoma, 30%-40% develop local recurrence, and approximately 40% develop at least one distant metastasis. Sites of metastases include contralateral lung, liver, peritoneum, brain, pancreas, breast, skin, and bone. In a study by Bégueret and colleagues, 2-year and 5-year disease-specific survival was 64.3% and 31.6%, respectively. [86]
