History and Physical Examination

A solitary fibrous tumor (SFT) typically presents as a deep, painless enlarging mass in the thigh, axilla, or pelvis. Males and females are equally affected; the median age is 45 years. [5, 6] Patients may exhibit symptoms associated with a local compressive effect on viscera or neurovascular structures. Paraneoplastic syndromes such as hypoglycemia have been described. [13]
