Solitary fibrous tumor (SFT) is a rare mesenchymal tumor originating in the pleura or at virtually any site in the soft tissue. Although they are commonly thought of as intrathoracic tumors, 50% to 70% of SFTs arise outside the thorax. Approximately 78% to 88% of SFT are benign and 12% to 22% are malignant. The most common sign/symptom of intraabdominal SFT is a palpable abdominal mass with pain and weight loss. Compression symptoms, including dysuria, urinary retention, hydronephrosis, constipation, incontinence, or vomiting have also been reported. However, an intraabdominal SFT located abdominal wall was asymptomatic in this case presentation.
