Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Solitary fibrous tumor, initially described in the pleura, is now known to occur in various extrathoracic sites. However, its occurrence in the female genital tract, especially the vagina, is extremely rare. The authors report here a case of a well-circumscribed vaginal spindle cell nodule in a 48-year-old woman with features consistent with solitary fibrous tumor. The diagnosis was established histologically by the varying pattern with hypocellular fibrous areas alternating with hypercellular areas and hemangiopericytoma-like areas and, immunohistochemically by the strong positive reaction for CD34 and Bcl2 with a negative reaction for all other spindle cell and epithelial markers. The differential diagnosis is discussed and a review of the literature is presented.
