We report a rare case of metastatic malignant solitary fibrous tumor (SFT) that presented with hypoglycemia because of insulin growth factor-2 production. Initial workup included computed tomography imaging that revealed a large, partially necrotic liver mass, a hypervascular pancreatic head lesion, and 2 renal lesions. Following hepatic resection, pancreatic head resection and nephrectomy, all these lesions demonstrated pathological findings that were consistent with SFT. The patient also had a history of an intracranial mass that had been previously resected and treated with gamma knife therapy at an outside institution, which was found to also be SFT...

Solitary fibrous tumor (SFT) is a mesenchymal neoplasm that appears primarily in the pleura and rarely in intrapulmonary or endobronchial topography. The authors report the case of a 47-year-old woman who presented obstructive respiratory symptoms for 4 years. The chest computed tomography and bronchoscopy showed an obstructive polypoid lesion located between the trachea and the left main bronchus associated with distal atelectasis of the left lung. A resection of the lesion was performed and, macroscopically, the mass was oval, encapsulated, and firm, measuring 2...

Malignant solitary fibrous tumor (MSFT) is a well-described entity, from which heterologous differentiation is extremely rare. We encountered a case of MSFT with rhabdomyosarcomatous differentiation in a 56-year-old man. This patient presented with a large mass in his posterior thigh. He had been treated with chemoradiation for sarcoma involving the cervical spine, right femoral head, and both lungs 6 months earlier. A wide excision was performed. The mass measured 10.6 cm and showed a fish-flesh cut surface with necrotic foci...

A36 -year-old man with intellectual disabilities consulted a local physician complaining of a cough, and an abdominal mass was observed on palpation. The patient visited our hospital for close examination. Abdominal contrasting CT revealed a mass with a clear boundary with heterogeneous contrast on the left side of his abdominal cavity. We performed a laparotomy and observed that the tumor originated from the greater omentum. The tumor size was 9×8×6 cm and its weight was 200 g. Histopathologic examination showed hyperplastic spindle-shaped tumor cells with less nuclear fission...

INTRODUCTION: NAB2-STAT6 gene fusion is a molecular characteristic of solitary fibrous tumors (SFT) and hemangiopericytoma, underscoring their definition as one diagnostic entity. NAB2-STAT6 fusion is associated with nuclear relocation of STAT6 protein that can be detected by immunohistochemistry. We evaluated the diagnostic value of STAT6 expression in meningeal tumors. METHODS: 77 meningeal tumors (17/77 (22.0%) SFT/hemangiopericytoma, 11/77 meningothelial meningioma, 10/77 atypical meningioma 8/77 chordoid meningioma, 9/77 fibroblastic meningioma, 10/77 transitional meningioma, 3/77 rhabdoid meningioma and 9/77 anaplastic meningioma) were included...

Solitary fibrous pleura tumor is a rare primary intrathoracic tumor of the pleura. It usually has an indolent clinical course, but sometimes it can have an aggressive behaviour. In 1930 Doege and Potter independently described this neoplasm, presenting with symptoms of hypoglycemia, hence the eponim of Doege-Potter's Syndrome. In this report, we illustrate a case of Doege Potter's Syndrome, treated with complete surgical resection.

We describe a patient with Doege-Potter syndrome (solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura presenting with hypoglycemia) and illustrate several important lessons learned from the case. Seven years after the initial diagnosis, the tumor showed significant growth and developed a high-grade undifferentiated component. Solitary fibrous tumors do grow and cannot be deemed benign. Resection should be considered in all patients who are candidates for operation upon diagnosis. Our case also serves as a reminder of this rare syndrome, inasmuch as early recognition of the association of hypoglycemia with these tumors may have allowed for earlier diagnosis and avoidance of extensive tests in our patient...

Solitary fibrous tumors of the spine are rare lesions. Their description in the literature is limited to case reports and small case series. While generally benign lesions, they can recur and occasionally occur as malignancies. Here the authors present the case of a 10-year-old boy, the youngest patient and first preadolescent reported thus far, with this condition. In addition, they perform a comprehensive review of all previously published cases of spinal solitary fibrous tumors.

INTRODUCTION: Testicular benign tumors are very rare (< 5%). Testicular Angiofibroma (AF) is one of those, however the gold standard of treatment and follow-up is still unclear. CASE REPORT: A 47 years-old man with only one functioning testis was referred to our clinic for a palpable right testicular mass and atrophic contralateral testis. Patient underwent testis-sparing surgery with inguinal approach and intraoperative frozen sections examination with diagnosis of AF...

Solitary fibrous tumors (SFTs) are relatively rare neoplasms that commonly occur in the pleura. The pathological feature of SFTs is a proliferation of spindle-shaped cells in interlacing or storiform fascicles. SFTs appear to derived from pluripotential submesothelial cells, but not the covering mesothelium. SFTs distinctively show diffuse staining for CD34 but lack staining for smooth muscle markers. We herein report a relatively rare case of a 68-year-old male patient without symptoms, who underwent resection for what was considered to be SFT...

A solitary fibrous tumor is a neoplasm generally arising from the mesothelial surfaces of the pleura and mesothelium. In this paper, we describe three cases of rare solitary fibrous tumors arising from the orbit and discuss the management of the tumors, including diagnosis and treatment. All three cases were treated by surgical resection and showed satisfactory aesthetic and functional results. For a definitive diagnosis, immunohistochemical staining for proteins such as vimentin, CD34 and bcl-2 and hematoxylin and eosin (H&E) staining for identifying the morphological characteristics of spindle cell tumors with a partially storiform pattern and staghorn vessels are indispensable...

PURPOSE: solitary fibrous tumors (SFT) represent a heterogeneous group of primary pleural neoplasms with a low incidence rate and of which the biological origin, which consists of mesenchymal cells, is uncertain. METHODS: The authors present herewith a retrospective analysis of 22 patients with SFTs who were diagnosed and surgically treated between the years 2000-2015. The preoperative tumors were successfully verified morphologically by transthoracic core needle biopsy under CT control in 27...

BACKGROUND: Solitary fibrous tumors(SFT) are rare mesenchymal tumors that occasionally occur in the central nervous system(CNS). It is difficult to fully understand their clinical characteristics, partly due to a limited number of reported cases. METHODS: We reviewed 24 patients admitted to our institution between 2009 and 2016 with CNS solitary fibrous tumors. We reviewed and analyzed patient profiles, such as demographics, presentations, imaging studies, extent of resection, and adjuvant treatment...

INTRODUCTION: Solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura is an uncommon tumor with an indolent course and a good prognosis after surgical resection. However, the tumor occasionally follows an unpredictable clinical course and malignant transformation has been reported to increase the rate of local recurrence. Solitary extrathoracic metastasis from solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura is an uncommon finding. CASE PRESENTATION: In this case report we present the first case of a synchronous single pulmonary and pancreatic metastasis treated with minimally invasive surgery...

BACKGROUND: Solitary fibrous tumors (SFT) arising from the larynx are extremely rare; most occur in the supraglottic larynx. CASE REPORT: Herein, we detail a new case of a subglottic SFT presenting as a well-encapsulated soft-tissue tumor with hoarseness. It showed isoattenuation, similar to the adjacent muscle on pre-contrast computed tomography (CT) images, and strong, heterogeneous enhancement following contrast material administration, which may reflect hypervascularity...

Solitary fibrous tumors (SFTs) of the spine are exceedingly rare tumors of mesenchymal origin. Most spinal SFTs arise from the thoracic spine, followed by cervical spine, and last lumbar spine with only 6 cases reported in literature. SFTs represent a wide range of neoplasms, ranging from benign to malignant. These tumors can develop a late recurrence, even after a decade or more of initial presentation, requiring long-term follow-up. We present a case of recurrent SFT of the lumbar spine with vertebral body involvement, presenting more than a decade after initial resection...
