Solitary fibrous tumor (SFT) is an uncommon spindle cell neoplasm with unpredictable behavior. It was originally described in the pleura, but is now known to occur in various locations. SFT of the tongue is rare, with only four cases on record. An SFT of the anterolateral part of the left side of the tongue, which occurred in a 48 year-old man is recorded. The tumor was resected and the patient remains free of recurrence 3 years postoperatively.
