Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Hemangiopericytoma is a very rare angiogenic tumor. In the nasal cavity, it can be considered malignant. It occurs in various parts of the body but those in the nasal cavity account for only 5% of total cases. Less than 200 cases have been reported worldwide involving the nose and paranasal sinuses. Due to its rarity a proper line of management has not been established to tackle this tumour. This article highlights two cases of hemangiopericytoma (HPC), one in an adult and the other in a child, presenting as an intranasal mass.
