Author information

Department of Pathology, Martin Luther King Drew Medical Center, Los Angeles, CA 90059, USA.


We report this case with "multifocal solitary fibrous tumors of the pleura," which recurred at different sites in the left pleura at different time intervals over a span of 25 years, finally exhibiting features of malignant transformation. This patient was first seen in 1978, when she was 58 years of age, for episodic attacks of hypoglycemia and a mass occupying the entire left hemithorax. The operative findings and histologic appearance were that of a solitary fibrous tumor.
