Hemangiopericytomas are uncommon neoplasms of
vascular origin that mostly arise from extremities,
retroperitoneum, and pelvic fossa. They are rarely found
in the parotid gland. A 35-year-old female patient presented
with a swelling in the right preauricular region.
Fine-needle aspiration biopsy performed twice yielded
an extraordinary amount of blood. A cytological diagnosis
could not be made. Computed tomography
showed a homogenous, well-shaped mass in the
parotid gland. Superficial parotidectomy was performed.
Histopathological diagnosis was made as hemangiopericytoma.
No evidence for local recurrence or distant
metastasis was seen within a follow-up of 36 months.
