XAMBRE, L. et al. Solitary fibrous tumour: Two additional case reports with urological implications. Actas Urol Esp [online]. 2003, vol.27, n.10, pp.832-838. ISSN 0210-4806.
Solitary fibrous tumour is a well defined pathological entity originally described as a tumour of the pleura, but the occurrence of this neoplasm has increasingly been described at other sites. At present the development of these tumours is recognized as possible in virtually all anatomical sites. The rarity of this type of pathology has not allowed up to the present time clarification of the histogenesis, clinical behaviour, treatment and prognosis of these tumours. Differential diagnosis becomes important, especially in extra-thoracic sites so as not to mistake them for much more aggressive mesenquimal tumours. Two additional cases of this neoplasm are presented, one of them responsible for obstructive uropathy, accidentally found in a patient suffering renal trauma. The second tumour was located in the spermatic cord. A review of the theme is presented based on the available literature.
