Historically, solitary fibrous tumors were thought to arise from the pleura, but solitary fibrous tumors arising from extrathoracic sites have been reported in increasing frequency. This is the case of a 32-year-old woman presenting with unspecific discomfort. An 8cm-diameter round tumor situated just posterior to the middle third of the rectal ampulla is diagnosed. The laparoscopic approach is demonstrated.
