BACKGROUND: Solitary fibrous tumor is a rare mesenchymal tumor reported initially in the pleura but that is now reported in widely ranging anatomic sites with a variable clinical course. Solitary fibrous tumor arising from the female genital tract is extremely rare and the management of this condition is controversial. CASES: We report three cases of female genital tract solitary fibrous tumors displaying different clinical behaviors and review literature with regard to diagnosis, possible prognostic factors, and management of this tumor. CONCLUSION: The primary treatment of this disease should be surgical. The rarity and disparate clinical manifestations of this disease preclude a definitive statement on use and optimization of adjuvant therapy. Nevertheless, both pathologic and clinical findings may be useful in gauging risk and assessing the merits of individualized adjuvant therapy.
