Objective: Solitary fibrous tumors are mostly benign tumors that originating from submesenchymal cells of parietal or, more commonly, visceral pleura.
Case: In that case, we have hospitalized a male patient, who was attended to the emergency service with massive bleeding, with a giant (15 x 20cm) mass located on his nape. The operation was planned as a collaboration of plastic and cardiovascular surgery teams. After a successful surgical excision histopathologically, the result was solitary fibrous tumor.
Discussion: Our approach resulted in a satisfying operative result without harmful complications in such a difficult case. In our opinion, surgical approach should always be thought as an option regardless of size in case of solitary tumors.
Key words: Solitary Fibrous Tumor; Vascular Surgery; Nape
