 Abstract
Solitary fibrous tumor (SFT) of the liver is a rare entity and its presentation is usually delayed till they grow to a sub-stantial size. Clinico-radiological features are non-specific, contributing to increase in the diagnostic dilemma. Definitive diagnosis of SFT is usually made based on the histological features and immunohistochemistry data of the resected specimen. In this case report, we describe the case of an elderly male who presented with a large mass in the left lobe of the liver with normal level of tumor markers and atypical radiological findings. The patient successfully under-went resection of the tumor and the diagnosis was confirmed on histopathology. (Ann Hepatobiliary Pancreat Surg 2018;22:156-158)
