Solitary fibrous tumor (SFT) is a rare tumor with incidence <2% in all soft tissue tumors. About 30% of SFTs arise in thoracic cavity, 30% arise from the intra-abdominal cavity, and another 20% occur in head and neck. We presented a case with a painless, slow-growing intra-abdominal tumor for more than a decade. Physical examinations, blood test, and image studies provide little clues preoperatively. Definite diagnosis relies on pathological confirmation. Currently, there are numerous immunohistochemistry tools to facilitate making diagnosis correctly.
