Rubacha, M., Tubbs, R.S., Li, R., Rocque, B., Blount, J.P., 2015. Pediatric central nervous system solitary fibrous tumor: case report. Childs Nerv Syst 31, 2379–2381. doi:10.1007/s00381-015-2761-z

ABSTRACT

INTRODUCTION:

Solitary fibrous tumors are mesenchymally derived masses most commonly originating from the lung pleura.

CASE REPORT:

Herein, we report a 6-month-old presenting with syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone secretion (SIADH) and a suprasellar mass. The mass proved to be a solitary fibrous tumor. This case and salient literature are reviewed.

CONCLUSIONS:

To our knowledge, this is the youngest patient to be described with a mass of this type within the central nervous system.
