INTRODUCTION: Solitary fibrous stromal tumors of the lung (SFTP) are rare indolent tumors arising from the submethothelial mesenchymal cells of the pleura, which comprise less than 5% of pleural tumors. Over 80% of SFTP are benign demonstrate indolent slow growth with symptoms being related to local tumor effect. Giant tumors grow silently prior to being diagnosed, creating substantial challenges to surgical resection.
