The distinction of solitary fibrous tumors (SFTs) from histologically similar neoplasms relies heavily on a characteristic microscopic appearance. No discriminating ultrastructural or immunohistochemical features are known. We evaluated 22 SFTs and 118 other tumors often considered in the differential diagnosis for immunoreactivity using a monoclonal antibody directed against the human hematopoietic progenitor cell antigen, CD34. All the SFTs (22 of 22, 100%) demonstrated strong CD34… CONTINUE READING
