Abstract: We herein present two cases of solitary fibrous tumor (SFT) of the pleura. In case 1, a 66-year-old female was admitted with a nodule in the left lung field gradually inceasing in size for a period of two years. During video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS), the tumor showed a pedunculated tumor arised from the visceral pleura. Resected specimens were diagnosed to be SFT of the pleura with a malignant potential. In case 2, a 69-year-old female was admitted with a mass lesion in the left lower lung field. MRI showed a tumor with very low signal intensity on T2 weighted images, which was compatible with SFT of the pleura. During VATS, the tumor adhered to the parietal pleura with some fibrous bands but was easily removed. Resected specimens were diagnosed to be a benign SFT of the pleura. MRI was considered to be a helpful modality for the preoperative diagnosis of SFT.
