Abstract

The solitary fibrous tumour (SFT) is a rare tumour, which usually occurs in the pleura. Patients with an advanced SFT have a poor prognosis. The treatment options for recurrent disease are especially limited. We present the case of a 55-year-old female patient with a malignant SFT of the pleura, who received conventional chemotherapy and targeted therapy. This paper focuses on systemic therapy in the treatment of metastatic SFT.
