Abstract

A 75-year-old asymptomatic woman with stable coronary heart disease presented tumor in lower left lobe on routine chest radiograph. A CT scan showed a large sharply delineated mass at this site (84 x 52 x 90 mm). There were no signs of infiltration, no abnormalities were seen in mediastinal structures and on the right side. The pedunculated tumor was resected during left thoracotomy (posterolateral incision). Histological examination revealed spindle-like cells and rich collagen net. Mitoses and necrosis were absent. Final diagnosis was: solitary fibrous tumor of the visceral pleura. During 7-year follow-up recurrence was not observed.
