ABSTRACT

Introduction: We report a recurrent case of hemangiopericytoma/solitary fibrous tumor of fourth ventricle that was misdiagnosed as atypical meningioma.
Case Report: We report a case of hemangiopericytoma in a 40-year-old female. Hemangiopericytoma can occur anywhere where capillaries present, it is a rare tumor with uncommon location in the Central nervous system. It has only recently been included in ‘mesenchymal, non-meningiothelial tumors’ in revised WHO classification of 2016. It should be differentiated from meningioma as the hemangiopericytoma is more aggressive and metastasizes and this patient was misdiagnosed as the case of atypical meningioma on magnetic resonance imaging scan.
Conclusion: Intracranial hemangiopericytoma/ solitary fibrous tumor should be distinguished from meningioma as the former is locally aggressive and can metastasize.

Keywords: Fourth ventricle, Hemangiopericytoma, Meningioma, Solitary fibrous tumor, WHO classification of CNS tumors
