Background. Solitary fibrous tumor (SFT) is a rare neoplasm that commonly involves the pleura and lung. Although SFT has generally been assumed to be benign, local recurrence sometimes occurs after surgery. We report two cases of SFT of the pleura. Cases. Case 1: A 23-year-old man had SFT of the parietal pleura. After the initial operation, the patient received two more operations because of local recurrence. Case 2: A 25-year-old man had SFT of the visceral pleura. The tumor was removed by thoracoscopic surgery. There is no sign of recurrence. Conclusion. The determination of the surgical margin is important to avoid local recurrence and patients should be strictly followed for a long time after surgery.
