Solitary fibrous tumors of the pleura represent less than 5% of all the tumors of the pleura. They are from mesenchymal origins and present a diagnosis difficulty. We report the cases of two patients who presented clinically with a pleural effusion like syndrome. The chest x ray showed a large homogenous opacity of the thorax and the chest CT found a large well defined tumor. Both patients underwent a large surgical resection of the tumor with a satisfying clinical and radiological follow up.
