In solitary fibrous tumors (SFTs) of the pleura, malignant SFTs are uncommon. Although SFTs are known to cause paraneoplastic syndromes through the production of insulin-like growth factor, to the best of our knowledge, the production of beta-human chorionic gonadotropin (β-hCG) has been reported only in 1 case involving a patient with a benign SFT. We herein report the first case of the elevation of β-hCG serum levels associated with a malignant SFT in which the β-hCG serum level became a useful indicator of recurrence after the complete resection of the primary mediastinal lesion.
