Solitary fibrous tumours are uncommon neoplasms that have been described as occurring in the pleura, peritoneum, lung, mediastinum, pericardium, nose and paranasal sinuses. This report describes the first known case of a solitary fibrous tumour of the diaphragm, occurring in a 60 year old woman with a two year history of respiratory symptoms. The lesion was initially misdiagnosed as an elevated left hemidiaphragm. The operative findings and histological appearance of the tumour are described. A review of the literature examines the various types and presenting features of solitary fibrous tumours as well as their clinical behaviour and postulated origin.
