Abstract

Sinonasal type hemangiopericytoma, now called as glomangiopericytoma is a rare neoplasm arising from the pericytes surrounding the capillaries. It accounts for less than 0.5% of all sinonasal tumors. This tumor is different from conventional soft tissue hemangiopericytoma and hence considered as a distinct entity. It behaves in a benign fashion. Local excision with regular post-operative follow-up is recommended. We present a case of this rare tumor in a 55 yr male with its clinicopathologic and immunohistochemical features.
