Start your bitcoind/bitcoin-qt with -rescan switch. Then it should synchronize after re-scanning the chain. Otherwise you can use RPC command dumpprivkey <bitcoinaddress> to export private key. Such an exported key you can import to another wallet with importprivkey <bitcoinprivkey> [label] [rescan=true]. You can also import it to your MtGox wallet.
