Abstract

Solitary fibrous tumours of the pleura (SFTP) are rare primary tumours that arise from the submesothelial tissue. They are mostly benign and asymptomatic, and by growing, they cause chest pain, irritating cough, and dyspnoea due to the pressure created on the surrounding structures. Immunohistochemical analysis has an expanding role in diagnostic. Surgical resection is the main treatment. We reviewed two patients who had undergone complete surgical resection for treatment and followed up periodically for two years at the University Medical Center at Ho Chi Minh City, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
