Hemangiopericytoma is an uncommon vascular tumour. Of the 26 intranasal hemangiopericytomas reported in the English literature only two paediatric cases have been noted. A benign course is more common in the nose and paranasal sinuses. A pre-operative diagnosis being not possible, definitive treatment cannot be preplanned. Wide surgical excision by a lateral rhinotomy approach is still the treatment of choice. The appropriate investigations and treatment line followed are described. A lifelong followup is mandatory.
