Gen Thorac Cardiovasc Surg. 2008 May;56(5):249-51. doi: 10.1007/s11748-008-0233-z. Epub 2008 May 11.


Solitary fibrous tumors are mesenchymal entities integrated in a mixed group of hemangiopericytoma-like neoplasms. Although classically presented as a pleura-based mass, there are extrapleural sites including the lung. We present the clinical, imaging, and histological features of a solitary fibrous tumor of the lung.
