Hemangiopericytomas are rare vascular neoplasms of the head and neck. Laryngeal involvement is even more rare, with only 9 previously reported cases in the literature. We present an unusual case of a 46year old with a supraglottic hemangiopericytoma treated surgically. We will review the clinical features and treatment of hemangiopericytomas, as well as a review of the literature. Otolaryngologists need to be aware of this rare tumor that can be treated successfully with surgical resection. Close long-term follow up is needed since recurrence can present many years after initial treatment.
