There is only one report in the Japanese language about the doubling time of solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura (SFTP) (1). We herein report the doubling time of an SFTP that was resected after being detected on computed tomography (CT) 3 years previously. In the present case, the tumor doubling time of SFTP was calculated to be 241 days.
