Solitary fibrous tumor (SFT) is a slow-growing neoplasm that affects both sexes equally but middle-aged patients more frequently. The course of the disease is unpredictable. SFT has been described in multiple locations. We present the case of a 62-year-old patient who went to the emergency room suffering from acute urinary retention due to solitary fibrous tumor of the abdominal wall. An arteriogram was performed with the decision make embolization before surgery. The SFT is a low-grade, potentially benign tumor. But the patient must be kept under strict oncological surveillance due to its uncertain behavior.

A birth defect in which the URINARY BLADDER is malformed and exposed, inside out, and protruded through the ABDOMINAL WALL. It is caused by closure defects involving the top front surface of the bladder, as well as the lower abdominal wall; SKIN; MUSCLES; and the pubic bone.
A protrusion of abdominal structures through the retaining ABDOMINAL WALL. It involves two parts: an opening in the abdominal wall, and a hernia sac consisting of PERITONEUM and abdominal contents. Abdominal hernias include groin hernia (HERNIA, FEMORAL; HERNIA, INGUINAL) and VENTRAL HERNIA.
Acute inflammation of the GALLBLADDER wall. It is characterized by the presence of ABDOMINAL PAIN; FEVER; and LEUKOCYTOSIS. Gallstone obstruction of the CYSTIC DUCT is present in approximately 90% of the cases.
