A case of synovial sarcoma of the jaw with pulmonary metastasis is described in a dog. It appears to be a rare or underdiagnosed neoplasm in animals and not previously reported in the jaw. Its diagnostic microscopic features are the biphasic cellular pattern and cleft formations. It may otherwise resemble haemangiopericytoma, malignant fibrous histiocytoma, reticulum cell sarcoma, fibrosarcoma, or giant-cell tumour of soft tissue.
