Solitary fibrous tumors of the pleura (SFTPs) are mesenchymal neoplasms that arise from the pleura. SFTPs can grow slowly and may become big masses with malignant behaviors and metastases. The ratio of benign to malignant is 7:1, and pathology is necessary to differentiate between benign and malignant. We present a case of a 37-year-old man with a presumptive diagnosis of benign SFTP by 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography, which was confirmed by pathology.
