A Rare Case of Solitary Fibrous Tumour of the Pelvis in an 18-Year-Old Young Man: CT and MRI Features with Pathologic Correlations.

Res Rep Urol 2020 29;12:687-690. Epub 2020 Dec 29.

Department of Neurosciences, Human Reproduction and Odontostomatology, University "Federico II", Naples, Italy.

SFT presents as a slow growing, often asymptomatic mass, generally affecting middle-aged adults regardless of the sex. We report a rare case of an 18-year-old man referred to our institution to perform computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), to investigate a pelvic mass incidentally discovered at abdominal ultrasound examination.

Microsurgical Resection of Cervical Intradural Juxtamedullary Solitary Fibrous Tumor: 2-Dimensional Operative Video.

Oper Neurosurg (Hagerstown) 2020 Oct;19(5):E532

Department of Translational Research and New Technologies in Medicine and Surgery, Pisa University Hospital, Pisa, Italy.

Solitary fibrous tumors (SFTs) are uncommon mesenchymal lesions originally described as pleura-based neoplasms. Intradural juxtamedullary SFTs are rare, hard, and scarcely vascularized and generally present a conspicuous extramedullary exophytic component without dural attachment and nerve root involvement. Gross-total resection is the mainstay of treatment, although the absence of an arachnoidal plane and the firm adherence to the spinal cord make resection challenging. Read More

Case report: uniportal video-assisted thoracoscopic resection of a solitary fibrous tumor preoperatively predicted visceral pleura origin using dynamic chest radiography.

J Cardiothorac Surg 2020 Jul 8;15(1):166. Epub 2020 Jul 8.

Department of Thoracic, Cardiovascular and General Surgery, Kanazawa University, Takara-machi 13-1, Kanazawa, 920-8640, Japan.

Solitary fibrous tumors of the pleura: a clinical-pathological characterization emphasizing changes in lung function.

Adv Respir Med 2019 ;87(4):247-251

Hospital Regional de Alta Especialidad de la Península de Yucatán, Yucatán, México.

Solitary fibrous tumors of the pleura (SFTP) represent less than 5% of all pleural tumors with a higher susceptibility for men in the sixth and seventh decades of life. Imaging and histopathological analyses indicate that these tumors have an unpredictable clinical course since larger tumors are often associated with malignancy; however, this assumption is not universal. In addition, there are no systematic descriptions of lung function in either the basal or post-surgical scenarios of SFTP patients. Read More
