Hemangiopericytoma of the parotid gland: a case report

Fatih Öktem1, Emin Karaman, Aydın Mamak, Süleyman Yılmaz, Sibel Erdamar

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.
