SANTOS, L. A. M.; SANTOS, V. M.; OLIVEIRA, O. C. G. e MARCO, M. De. Solitary fibrous tumour of the pancreas: a case report. Anales Sis San Navarra [online]. 2012, vol.35, n.1, pp.133-136. ISSN 1137-6627. http://dx.doi.org/10.4321/S1137-66272012000100013.
The solitary fibrous tumour is an uncommon neoplasm of mesenchymal origin. It occasionally develops in extra pleural locations, and is very infrequent in the pancreas. A 40-year-old woman had an unsuspected solitary fibrous tumour detected by chance in the body of the pancreas. Detection of the mass occurred with imaging studies. CT and MRI images showed the well-circumscribed benign lesion, with 3 cm on its greatest diameter. Treatment consisted of partial pancreatectomy, and her postoperative recovery was uneventful.
