Abstract:Background: Solitary Fibrous Tumours (SFT)or historically otherwise known as Hemangiopericytomas, are rare benign neoplasms of mesenchymal origin that most commonly occur in the peritoneum and the pleura. SFTs show variable behaviour and are known to recur and metastasise. We present a case of a 68-year-old Caucasian male presenting to the regional Oral and Maxillofacial unit at Aintree University Hospital with a painful and enlarging swelling, located anteriorly on the tongue. Due to the rarity of the diagnosis, there are only a few reported cases in the literature of SFTs affecting the tongue. The lesion was successfully excised surgically with laser and the patient has been reviewed regularly showing no clinical signs of local or regional recurrence.
