Abstract

Hemangiopericytoma (HPC) is a rare tumor in childhood and accounts for approximately 3% of all soft tissue sarcomas in this age group. Intracranial location is extremely rare. Furthermore, tumors are even more rare in the first year of life and are referred to as infantile hemangiopericytoma. Previously, nine infantile intracranial HPC cases have been reported in the literature. This is a case report of an infantile intracranial HPC and review of the literature.
