Keywords:Solitary fibrous tumor, pleura, surgery
Solitary fibrous tumors of pleura are rare and slow growing lesions. These tumors are frequently originated from visceral pleura and hang on pulmonary parenchyma with a pedicle. Furthermore, they can be originated from parietal pleura, mediastinal pleura, diaphragmatic surface, interlober fissura or pulmonary parencyhma. It could be observed as a pleural thickness or an occupying lesion in thorax radiologically. Diagnosis is usually obtained from the specimen resected surgically. Treatment is a surgical resection and it is usually curative. Recurrence after complete resection is possible in benign and malignant variants. Postoperative adjuvant therapy with radiotherapy, chemotherapy, or both has been sporadically used, but its benefit remains unproved.
