Slides of a solitary fibrous tumor/hemangiopericytoma demonstrating a highly cellular tumor with sparse background reticulum and numerous branching thin walled vessels and frequent mitoses. Areas of necrosis are visible (figure 4). This is consistent with a grade III hemangiopericytoma pattern tumor.
Ideally, the diagnosis would be confirmed with STAT6 immunohistochemistry, as well as CD34 and vimentin.
