Abstract

Solitary fibrous tumor (SFT) is a rare mesenchymal neoplasm that most frequently arises in the pleura and uncommonly involves the orbit. There are 54 cases of SFT of the orbit available in the literature. The authors report tow cases of an orbital SFT and discuss the clinical, radiological, pathological features and differential diagnosis. Long-term follow-up of patients is necessary because SFT may recur many years after operation. Complete surgical resection is the most important prognosis factor of this tumor.
