Abstract

Solitary fibrous tumours most commonly present in the pleura, but have been reported in other extrapleural sites. We present a case of an elderly female who was found to have a malignant solitary fibrous tumour of the right upper lobe bronchus, treated with thoracoscopic lobectomy and bronchoplastic closure.
