Malignant Solitary Fibrous Tumor of the Scalp.

J Maxillofac Oral Surg. 2016 Jul;15(Suppl 2):245-8

Authors: Shirley BM, Kang DR, Sakamoto AH

Solitary fibrous tumors are an uncommon slow growing benign neoplasm originally described as a pleural neoplasm but can also be found in the lung, mediastinum, peritoneum, or any other sites including the head and neck. Malignant solitary fibrous tumors (MSFT) are extremely rare and only few cases have been published in the literature. There have been 19 cases reported of MSFT in the head and neck, but there are no reports of MSFT located within the scalp in the English language literature. We present a case of MSFT arising in the scalp and describe our experience with the clinical presentation, surgical management, and outcome in this pathological condition.
