Abstract

We report a patient with solitary fibrous tumor of the liver, a rare fibrous neoplasm which to our knowledge has been reported in only 21 patients in the English literature. Most frequently, solitary fibrous tumors arise in the thoracic cavity, particularly in the pleura. Hypoglycemia has rarely been associated with these mesenchymal tumors. The presentation of this patient with hypoglycemic coma without preceding symptomatology, to our knowledge, has never been reported.
