Intracranial cystic hemangiopericytoma--case report.
MedLine Citation:
PMID:  1720209     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A rare case of intracranial hemangiopericytoma associated with a large cyst was treated by gross total removal and local irradiation. The tumor has not recurred for 16 months, although the effectiveness of radiation therapy for hemangiopericytoma is unclear. Histological examination of the tumor specimen showed aggregation of the microcystic components, possibly contributing to the cyst formation. Hemangiopericytoma should not be classified as meningioma because of the different neoplastic and cytological properties. Complete surgical removal is essential for this tumor because of its malignancy.
