Solitary Fibrous Tumor (SFT) is a rare spindle cell soft tissue tumor. The combination of clinical, biochemical, and radiological features may help in lesion characterization, but only histology can provide the definitive diagnosis. Recurrence and/or metastases have been reported in up to 10% to 15% of cases. Although no clear evidence-based treatment guidelines exist, it is widely accepted that renal SFT need to be removed surgically to avoid the potential of malignant degeneration and metastases. A longer follow-up period might be necessary to definitively evaluate the clinical outcome of a renal SFT. A 36-year-old male, without comorbidities, underwent laparoscopic excision of a 7 cm left juxta-hilar pararenal mass in October 2018. Preoperative abdominal Computed Tomography (CT) was compatible with a renal cell carcinoma. The pathological study revealed an SFT. An abdominal CT scan, in May 2021, identified a new suspicious left kidney nodule. Thereafter, the patient had done a Magnetic Resonance Image (MRI) in June 2021 that confirmed a mesorrenal nodule suspicious of renal cell carcinoma (24 mm × 21 mm × 21 mm) in the left kidney. He was submitted to open excision of two left juxta-hilar pararenal lesions. Histology provided the definitive diagnosis of metachronous Solitary Fibrous Tumors (SFTs). This is a very rare case of metachronous SFTs in the same kidney of the first resection in a young patient.
