Abstract

Solitary fibrous tumor (SFT) is a rare mesen­chymal tumor of the pleura, which arises from visceral pleura and projects into the pleural cavity. This tumor is not related to asbestos exposure or cigarette smoking (1). We report a rare case of SFT of the lung. In this case report, we present the case of a giant SFT in a 76-year-old woman who presented with the complaint of chest pain on the left side for several months; SFT was proved on examination.
