F-FDG PET/CT characteristics of solitary fibrous tumour of the pleura: single institution experience.

Ann Nucl Med 2022 May 8;36(5):429-438. Epub 2022 Feb 8.

Department of Radiology, Shanghai Pulmonary Hospital, School of Medicine, Tongji University, Shanghai, 200092, China.

Solitary Fibrous Tumors Arising from Bilateral Ovaries: A Case Report and Review of the literature.

Curr Med Imaging 2021 Dec 9. Epub 2021 Dec 9.

Department of Radiology, Northern Jiangsu People's Hospital, Medical School of Yangzhou University, Yangzhou 225001, Jiangsu Province. China.

It was originally described as a tumor localized to the pleura but was later reported in several other anatomic sites and exhibited a wide spectrum of histological features. Owing to its rarity, the diagnosis of extrapleural SFT is challenging and requires an integrated approach comprising specific clinical, imaging, histological, and immunohistochemical findings.

Recurrent fibrous solitary tumor of the parotid gland with satellite location: imaging, clinical and histological findings of rare entity.

Radiol Case Rep 2021 Oct 1;16(10):2924-2928. Epub 2021 Aug 1.

Department of Neuroradiology, "Umberto I" Hospital, Viale San Francesco 2, 84014, Nocera Inferiore (SA), Italy.

Fibrous Solitary Tumors are infrequent neoplasms originating from mesenchymal tissues, most commonly arising from the visceral pleura and frequently exhibiting a benign behavior. Extra-pleural localization is unusual and the site of origin of these tumors from the parenchyma of the parotid gland is considered extremely rare. We report the case of a 66-years old woman with non-painful slow-growing left latero-cervical mass, who underwent a gadolinium-enhanced Magnetic Resonance Imaging showing a mass originating from the deep lobe of the parotid gland extending into the retro-pharyngeal space.
