A 17-year-old female patient presented with complaints of difficulty in swallowing of 1-year duration, which was gradually progressive, associated with throat pain radiating to the left ear. There is no history of change in voice. There is no history of an injury or previous surgery. Computed tomography scanning confirmed a mass arising from the left aryepiglottic fold. On direct laryngoscopy, a mass was seen on the left aryepiglottic fold, which was excised and subjected to immunohistochemistry which revealed synovial sarcoma (SS). SS is a very rare tumor in the larynx, we report this case for its rarity.
