We report a case of a benign solitary fibrous tumor that occurred in the right shoulder of a 9-year-old girl. This case is remarkable due to the unusual location of its occurrence and the young age of the patient. In addition, cytogenetic analysis revealed a karyotype unreported in this neoplasm: 46,XX,der(4)t(4;9)(q31.1;q34), del(9)(p22p24),der(9)t(4;9)(q31.1;q34)ins(9;?)(q34;?) (17 cells)/46,XX (3 cells).
