Abstract

Solitary Fibrous Tumours (SFTs) are rare entities that are most commonly seen in the pleura. However, SFTs could affect different organs and tissues. Pelvic SFTs are rarely reported in the literature and para-rectal ones are even rarer. We present here a case of a 43 –year-old lady with continuous nonspecific pelvic pain and fullness. Para clinical investigations were consistent with a well-demarcated mass in the perirectal region. Despite some radiologic features that were consistent with a GIST, however the diagnosis was unsure. After successful laparoscopic resection, histopathology was consistent with SFT.
