We present the interesting case of a patient with peritoneal solitary fibrous tumor (SFT). The patient initially presented with right lower quadrant pain. Computed tomography findings revealed the presence of a large mass near the cecum, with both arterial and venous blood supply arising directly from the splenic artery and vein. The patient ultimately underwent surgical excision of the mass, and pathological examination was consistent with benign SFT. Not only is the location of our patient's tumor exceedingly rare, but also, to our knowledge, it is the first reported case of SFT with such a unique vascular supply.
