Solitary fibrous tumor (SFT) represents a spectrum of mesenchymal tumors, encompassing tumors previously termed hemangiopericytoma, as having intermediate biological potential. Though they can occur at any site, lower distal extremity is a rare site and recurrence in it is extremely rare. Behavior of SFT is unpredictable. Histomorphology and clinical follow-up have poor correlation. The most important single indicator of clinical outcome is complete excision of the tumor at the time of primary presentation. Tumors with positive margins require close follow-up for several years owing to the potential for late local recurrence.
