Abstract

Solitary fibrous tumor (SFT) is a rare neoplasm arising from the pleura, although it can sometimes affect extrapleural sites, including the head and neck. The sinonasal involvement is exceptional. Recent literature defines the SFT as a single spectrum of mesenchymal tumors, including hemangiopericytoma, which is currently considered a cellular phenotypic variant. The current case describes a rare case of a nasal septal SFT. The mass was embolized and then removed through endonasal endoscopic surgery. Histopathologic examination demonstrated positive immunoreactivity for CD34, and negative for keratin and S100 protein confirming the diagnosis of benign nasal SFT. After two years of follow‑up, no relapse was observed. Diagnostic assessment of SFT requires nasal endoscopy, imaging and histopathological examination and a long time follow up is mandatory.
