Solitary fibrous tumor (SFT) is a rare neoplasm that mostly occurs as a pleural or serosal tumor. The present study reports a 28-year-old man who presented to the hospital with a 10-year old history of a painless mass in the tongue that he noticed after a tongue bite. He was suspected with a benign tumor, and an excisional biopsy was performed under general anesthesia. The histopathological examination of the specimen confirmed SFT. The patient’s condition was well and free of disease at 12 months after the surgery. In this present case study, we concluded that SFT may be considered as a differential diagnosis of soft tissue tumors in the oral cavity.
