Abstract

Hemangiopericytoma-like tumors are considered to originate from modified perivascular glomus-like myoid cell. Though it may arise from any part of the body, it is an uncommon tumor in the sino-nasal region. Sinonasal hemangiopericytoma-like tumor is important as it is recognized as a special variant of hemangiopericytoma because of its considerably more favorable prognosis. We encountered this rare case of sino-nasal hemangiopericytoma-like tumor in a 46-year-old- female with typical histological findings which helped in predicting the behavior of tumor and establishing proper line of management.
