ABSTRACT: Solitary fibrous tumor (SFT) is a rare neoplasm. Liver parenchyma is a rare location of SFT and, in this case, it usually follows a benign course. We report here the case of a 54-year-old man who presented a large SFT tumor of the right hepatic lobe. The tumor was surgically resected. Local recurrence occurred 6 years later as a 15 cm diameter liver tumor. Histological examination of the resected lesion showed features of an aggressive form of SFT. Two years later, the patient presented with complaints of neck pain and ensuing examinations revealed a tumor of the cranial base. A new surgical resection was performed and histological examination confirmed a metastasis of the SFT. Few weeks later, the patient presented an irreducible psoitis due to an iliac bone metastasis. He died within 1 month.
