  Abstract  
  Management of synovial sarcoma involving the popliteal fossa remains challenging. Although surgical excision is the mainstay of treatment, close neurovascular and articular structures preclude excision of the tumour in wide margins. In selected cases, limb salvage may be achieved with careful excision and reconstructive surgery. This case report presents a 13-year-old girl with a giant popliteal synovial sarcoma invading both popliteal artery and vein and compressing neural structures. Entire tumour was excised with negative microscopic margins and limb salvage was achieved with successful vascular reconstruction.
