Paraneoplastic syndrome associate with solitary fibrous tumor of pleura

Lung India. May-Jun 2018;35(3):245-247. doi: 10.4103/lungindia.lungindia_118_17.


Solitary fibrous tumor (SFT) is a rare mesenchymal tumor and several paraneoplastic syndromes have been related to it. We report the case of a 60-year-old male initially admitted to rule out cerebral vascular accident with the final diagnosis of SFT associated with paraneoplastic cerebellar degeneration and hypoglycemia. The diagnosis was confirmed by computed tomography-guided lung biopsy.

Keywords: Biopsy; paraneoplastic syndrome; solitary fibrous tumor of pleura.
