A case of hemangiopericytoma with multiple extracranial metastasis: a case report



A case of hemangiopericytoma with multiple extracranial metastasis: a case report



No Shinkei Geka. Neurological Surgery 26(3): 241-245



A case of a patient with hemangiopericytoma with multiple extracranial metastasis, who has survived for more than twenty years is reported. A fifty-five-year-old male presented brain tumor twenty years ago. He underwent total removal of the tumors, but recurrences occurred each time. Liver metastasis was found seven years ago. After that multiple metastases extended to the lung, vertebra and pancreas and operations and irradiations were performed. At present, there is no progression of the tumors and he enjoyed a high quality of life. We concluded that, to ensure long time survival, a patient with hemangiopericytoma must be monitored carefully for local recurrence and systemic metastases.
