Abstract

  Solitary fibrous tumor (SFT) is a rare neoplasm originated from sub-mesothelial lining mesenchymal cells and the involvement of greater omentum is extremely rare. In this report, a case of SFT arising from the greater omentum mimicking an ovarian tumor is introduced. A 24-year-old woman was referred to the oncology department. She had the history of lower abdominal pain. Investigations revealed abdominal-pelvic mass. The findings of sonography and MRI reported a solid-cystic adnexal mass presumably of uterine myoma. Exploratory laparotomy detected vascular tumor originating from the greater omentum. Final diagnosis of solitary fibrous tumor (SFT) of greater omentum was confirmed. The patient presented no evidence of recurrence during serial follow-up without adjuvant treatment. The SFT arising from greater omentum should be considered by clinician as a differential diagnosis of an abdominal mass associated with a pelvic tumor.
