Abstract

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.
