    A contrast enhanced CT section (lung windows) demonstrating the presence of a large enhancing, peripheral, pleurally based mass.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown;

    A close-up veiw of Fig. 2a (lung window) demonstrating the presence of a smooth pleural tail at the edge of the mass (laterally), indicating its pleural origin.

    A photomicrograph (Haematoxylin-eosinophil stain) demonstrating the presence of numerous spindle shaped tumour cells interspersed with collagen bundles.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown;

    Immunohistochemistry showing abundant CD34 expression, which is specific for solitary fibrous tumours.
