DOI : 10.5146/jcpath.2022.75 Aim: Solitary fibrous tumors (SFTs) are sporadic mesenchymal neoplasms that typically arise from visceral or parietal pleura. SFTs are rarely localized into the lung parenchyma while accounting <%5 of all pleural tumors. A few cases have been reported on this location in the literature. SFTs are not related to environmental factors such as tobacco smoking or asbestos exposure, unlike to the other tumors of lung and mesothelium.

Case: Herein, we describe a forty six year-old woman with solitary fibrous tumor located in the superior segment of the right lower lung lobe.

Conclusion: We are presenting this case because of its morphological findings that cause problems in differantial diagnosis and also its rare localization. Anahtar Kelimeler : Solitary fibrous tumors, Intrapulmonary localization
