Author information

Otolaryngology Department, Hippokratio General Hospital, Thessaloniki, Greece.


Solitary fibrous tumor (SFT) arises in the pleura and less commonly in extrapleural sites. SFT can be found in various head and neck sites. SFTs of the nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses are extremely rare with only ten previously reported cases in the world literature. This case report presents an additional case of SFT of the nasal cavity underlining the benign pattern and the bleeding tendency of nasal SFT, that surgeons managing these tumors should be aware of. Diagnostic procedure, clinical and histopathological findings as well as immunoreactivity of this tumor are discussed, with a review of the current literature.
