ABSTRACT
Hemangiopericytoma is a rare vascular neoplasm, which arises from specialized cells (pericytes) around the capillary walls. Only 5% of hemangiopericytomas in the series of Stout occurred in the oral cavity and pharynx. Several studies have revealed that due to chances of late recurrence or metastasis, long-term follow-up is necessary in patients with this tumor even after radical resection. We report a case of hemangiopericytoma of mandible in a 26-year-old woman, with 4 years′ follow-up.
