Solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura is very rare. Surgical treatment is the gold standard in this tumor. In surgery, video-assisted thoracic surgery is an effective surgical approach, with low morbidity and mortality. In this report, we present a 32-year-old man who diagnosed solitary fibrous tumor at right lung. We performed video- assisted thoracic surgery and removed the mass successfully.
