We report the clinical features, radiographic findings, management and results of a patient with a post-traumatic synovial sarcoma of the anterior tibialis tendon. Our patient was managed operatively and with radiotherapy with good clinical results. No evidence of recurrence or metastatic disease was seen at 3-year follow-up. (J Am Podiatr Med Assoc 102(2): 157–160, 2012)
