Solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura is a mostly benign and rare tumor. Its diagnosis and treatment can be made by surgical resection of the mass. Clinical presentation varies according to the size and intrathoracic localization of the tumor. A fortynine year old female with symptoms of cough and dispnea had a mass in her right lung.The lesion was resected by surgery. Immunohistochemically tumor cells stained positively for CD 34 and vimentine but there was no reactivity for pansitokeratin, demsin, CD31, S100 or South Musde Aktin. Due to these findings, it was histopathologically diagnosed as a pleural solitary fibrous tumor. We presented our case who did not show recurrence in her follow up for 2 years together with a review of the literature.
