Radiological findings in pelvic solitary fibrous tumour. BJR case reports Johannet, P. n., Kamaya, A. n., Gayer, G. n. 2016; 2 (4): 20150373


Solitary fibrous tumour (SFT) is an uncommon, usually benign mesenchymal neoplasm. SFT was first described in the pleura, but has subsequently been reported to occur in numerous anatomic locations including the abdomen and pelvis. Abdominopelvic SFTs are typically an indolent process, in spite of reaching a large size by the time of diagnosis. The preferred treatment is complete resection followed by extended follow-up surveillance. The risk of local recurrence and metastasis correlates with tumour size and the histological status of surgical margins. We present the imaging findings of a large pelvic SFT in a 61-year-old female, including ultrasound, CT and MRI.
