Aim: Sinonasal Hemangiopericytomas are rare Uncommon Soft Tissue Tumor of perivascular myoid differentiation with hemangiopericytoma-like vasculature. The clinical behaviour of the tumor is difficult to predict and surgical excision remains the treatment of choice. We present one such case of Sinonasal Hemangiopericytoma operated at our centre recently.
Materials and Method: 28 year old female presented with a painless swelling over the forehead since 6 months with history of gradual increase in size of the swelling and complaints of double vision in left eye and anosmia. Radiological evaluation showed a T1 isointense T2 hyperintense lesion arising in the left nasal cavity with an intracranial extension. Patient was operated upon for the same and Histopathological evaluation suggested the lesion to be a sinonasal hemangiopericytoma. Post operative period was uneventful.
Conclusion: Sinonasal Hemangiopericytoma are rare vascular tumors with a variable clinical discourse and a difficult diagnosis. Surgical excision is the treatment of choice and patients require long term follow ups.
