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

Surveillance for metastatic hemangiopericytoma-solitary fibrous tumors-systematic literature review on incidence, predictors and diagnosis of extra-cranial disease.

J Neurooncol 2018 Jul 17;138(3):447-467. Epub 2018 Mar 17.

Department of Neurosurgery, King's College Hospital, King's College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, London, UK.

Background: Intracranial hemangiopericytomas (HPC) and solitary fibrous tumors (SFTs) (HPC-SFT) are rare vascular tumors that resemble meningioma on imaging and predominantly affect young adults. HPC-SFT have a high rate of local recurrence with well-known propensity for extracranial metastases. This provides clinical dilemmas frequently encountered in oncology: (i) How should these patients be monitored long term? (ii) Which primary tumors are more likely to metastasize?

Objectives: This systematic review aims to identify the incidence, common locations and time to presentation of extra-cranial metastases of HPC-SFT. Read More

Ocular Plastic Sector, Centro de Referência em Oftalmologia, Universidade Federal de Goiás, Goiânia, GO, Brazil.

Solitary fibrous tumor (SFT) is a rare mesenchymal spindle-cell neoplasm commonly found in the pleura; it is rare in the orbit and extremely rare in the lacrimal gland. We herein report a case of SFT of the lacrimal gland that mimicked a pleo morphic adenoma. We discuss the clinical, radiological, histopathological, and immunohistochemical findings that provided insight and rationale to accurately diagnose this case. Read More

Department of Medicine, UCLA Medical Center Olive View, University of California, Los Angeles David Geffen, School of Medicine, Medicine, Sylmar, California, USA.

Solitary fibrous tumours (SFTs) are relatively rare neoplasms thought to originate from the submesothelial connective tissue. SFTs have been described in a variety of sites, including the pleura, orbit, lower respiratory tract, peritoneal cavity and heart. These neoplasms are usually benign, though locally aggressive, and metastatic behaviour has been observed in some cases. Read More

Solitary fibrous tumour of pleura: CT differentiation of benign and malignant types.

Clin Radiol 2017 Sep 8;72(9):796.e9-796.e17. Epub 2017 May 8.

Department of Medical Imaging, University of Ottawa, The Ottawa Hospital research Institute, The Ottawa Hospital, General Campus, 501 Smyth Road, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, K1H8L6.

Aim: To analyse and compare the computed tomography (CT) features of benign and malignant types of histopathologically proven cases of solitary fibrous tumours of pleura (SFTP).

Materials And Methods: Retrospective analysis of preoperative CT images of 28 cases of histopathologically proven and classified SFTP from three participating institutions was performed. Patient demographics and lesion characteristics including size, borders, presence of a pedicle, extension into the fissure, attenuation, enhancement, pleural effusion, and calcifications were recorded and correlated with the final histopathological diagnosis.

Rare Solitary Fibrous Tumor in the Pediatric Neck: A Case Report and Review of the Literature.

Cureus 2017 Apr 6;9(4):e1140. Epub 2017 Apr 6.

Otolaryngology/Facial Plastic Surgery, Beaumont Health- Farmington Hills.

Solitary fibrous tumors (SFT) are a rare type of mesenchymal-derived tumor not commonly found in the pediatric population, especially in the head and neck. Tumors of this nature are most commonly seen in the adult population and are identified with unique immunohistochemical markers, specifically signal transducer and activator of transcription 6 (STAT6) and hematopoietic progenitor cell antigen (CD34). Including SFTs in the differential diagnosis while working up a mass can be difficult considering their relatively non-descript appearance on imaging and the low yield immunohistochemical staining that must be ordered to confirm diagnosis.

Integrated therapeutic approach to giant solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura: report of a case and review of the literature.

Open Med (Wars) 2016 23;11(1):220-225. Epub 2016 Jun 23.

Department of Cardiothoracic and Respiratory Sciences, Second University of Naples/Hosp. Monaldi, Naples, Italy.

The fibrous tumors of the pleura are rare primary tumors, accounting for 5% of malignant pleural neoplasms, which generally originate from sub-mesothelial mesenchymal tissue of the visceral pleura. These tumours generally exhibit clinical benign behavior although 12% of solitary fibrous tumors can be malignant and have worse outcomes. These tumors are considered "giant" when the lesion > 15 cm.
