Synovial sarcoma is infrequent cancer. It is estimated to be approximately 5 to 15% of all soft tissue sarcomas. It is located mostly on the extremities. In other locations there is a rare clinical occurrence. It is described in very few cases only as located in chest wall. We would like to present the case in which synovial sarcoma of the chest wall was diagnosed. Surgery and postoperative external beam radiotherapy were used in treatment. Patient recived a dose of 60 Gy in 20 fractions. After radiotherapy development of radiation pneumonitis and fibrosis in the field of irradiation were noticed. Application of anti-inflammatory therapy afterwards obtained relief of symptoms and noted consolidation of radiation-induced changes in the lungs.
