Solitary ­fibrous ­tumor (SFT) is a mesen­chy­mal ­tumor ­which has ­been iden­ti­fied in a ­wide varie­ty of local­iza­tions, includ­ing ­soft tis­sues, peri­to­ne­um, ret­ro­per­i­ton­eum, med­i­as­ti­num, ­upper res­pir­a­to­ry ­tract, nasoph­a­ryn­geal sinus­es, per­i­os­teum and extrem­ities, ­orbit, ­major ­body cav­ities, intra­spi­nal and intra­cra­ni­al local­iza­tions. The ­authors ­describe a ­case of SFT ­found in the ­neck of a ­young ­patient suf­fer­ing ­from Arnold’s neu­ral­gia. After sur­gery, diag­no­sis of SFT was ­based on char­ac­ter­is­tic his­to­path­o­log­i­cal find­ings, espe­cial­ly on immu­no­his­to­chem­i­cal pos­i­tive stain­ing for CD34 anti­gen. It has ­been ­described ­also the char­ac­ter­is­tic pat­terns mak­ing ­this diag­nose ­sure, focus­ing the ­point ­that ­cure is pos­sible ­with com­plete exci­sion of the ­lesion.
