Solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura is a rare tumor and frequently arises from visceral pleura with a pedincule. Ultimately, thoracotomy and tumor resection are usually required for diagnosis. Surgical resection of benign solitary fibrous tumor is usually curative, but local recurrence can occur after years. In this study, three cases with histopathological diagnosis of pleural solitary fibrous tumor after surgical resection were discussed reviewing the literature.
