We report the MR imaging findings in a 44-year-old man with a low-grade synovial sarcoma. There was a right-sided epidural and paravertebral mass, widening of the ipsilateral neural foramen at the L4-L5 level, and focal erosion of the right superior articular process of the L5 vertebra. The mass was relatively homogeneous, hyperintense to muscle and isointense to fat on T2-weighted images, and isointense to muscle on T1-weighted images, and it demonstrated moderate homogeneous enhancement.
