Solitary fibrous tumor of the orbit--two cases and a review of the literature


Romer, M; Bode, B; Schuknecht, B; Schmid, S; Holzmann, D (2005). Solitary fibrous tumor of the orbit--two cases and a review of the literature. European Archives of Oto-Rhino-Laryngology, 262(2):81-88.

Abstract

Solitary fibrous tumors of the orbit (SFT) are mesenchymal lesions that can develop either as malignant or benign neoplasias. We describe the histological features leading to the diagnosis in two females and review the current literature. Diagnosis of SFT only can be performed by histological examination, since clinical signs and radiological features are not specific enough. Even a malignant or benign course cannot be predicted, since clinical and radiological features do not correlate with histological signs of malignancy and vice versa. Radical resection is the treatment of choice, since no other treatment option has been proven to be efficient.
