Synovial sarcomas are rare malignancies. Metastatic synovial sarcomas carry a particularly poor prognosis. While primary orbital lesions have been documented, the authors are aware of only one previous report of metastatic synovial sarcoma to the orbit. In this report, the second case of a metastatic synovial sarcoma to the orbit is described and the medical literature on this subject is reviewed.
