Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

Solitary fibrous tumor is a rare mesenchymal tumor initially described arising in the pleura but now reported in many other thoracic and extrathoracic sites. Here we report the first case of a 14-year-old girl who was discovered to have a large solitary fibrous tumor of the uterine cervix, an unusual site for these tumors, to highlight the diagnosis and management of these tumors.

METHODS:

Case report and review of the literature on extrapleural solitary fibrous tumors.

RESULTS:

The median age of occurrence is in the late 50's and there is only one previous report in the literature of a solitary fibrous tumor in a patient less than 18 years old. Most patients will be cured by complete surgical resection though late local and distant relapse will occur in a minority of patients, many of whom have indicative histological features. Complete surgical resection of this tumor arising in the uterine cervix, was achieved by performing a radical abdominal trachelectomy.

CONCLUSIONS:

Review of the literature confirms the good long-term outcome of the majority of these patients with complete surgical resection but emphasizes the importance of close long-term follow-up.
