Solitary fibrous tumours of the pleura: report of two cases and literature review

, : Solitary fibrous tumours of the pleura: report of two cases and literature review. Irish Journal of Medical Science 182(4): 729-733

Solitary fibrous tumours of the pleura (SFTPs) are rare pleural mesenchymal neoplasms with distinct clinicopathological and immunohistochemical features, accounting for less than 5 % of all neoplasms involving the pleura. We present two cases of SFTP with a review of the current literature. Clinical presentation varies according to size and intrathoracic localisation. The molecular pathology of SFTPs is largely unknown. Complete surgical resection is recommended with long-term clinic and radiographic follow-up due to its malignant potential. This is a summary of available literature outlining current clinical practice in the diagnosis, management, and treatment of SFTPs in Ireland.
