Localized fibroma represents a rare entity arising from the pleura. Currently its histogenesis and clinical behaviour are still controversial. A case of a 64-year-old male is here presented; clinical and histopathological features are then discussed on the basis of a review of the Literature. At present, an en-bloc resection of the tumor, including wide margins of the surrounding lung tissue, seems to be the most appropriate surgical choice.
