Solitary fibrous tumors of the pleura (SFTP) are rare. We report a case of giant SFTP treated by surgical resection. We found that many soft tumors were separated by fibrous cords and creamy white mucus in our case. Among them, one great mass measured 23 cm × 18 cm × 10 cm. These tumors weighed 3750 g. The patient had no postoperative complications and received a good prognosis.
