Solitary fibrous tumor (SFT) is a rare mesenchymal tumor and several paraneoplastic syndromes have been related to it. We report the case of a 60-year-old male initially admitted to rule out cerebral vascular accident with the final diagnosis of SFT associated with paraneoplastic cerebellar degeneration and hypoglycemia. The diagnosis was confirmed by computed tomography-guided lung biopsy.
