Abstract

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.
