Hemangiopericytoma tumors are a rare type of tumor in the blood vessels and soft tissue of the brain.
Hemangiopericytoma tumors may occur anywhere in the body on pericyte cells, which are the cells found in capillaries and venules. The brain is a common location for hemangiopericytoma tumors. These types of tumors can be benign or malignant, the latter of which risks spreading to other parts of the body, primarily the lungs and bones.
Surgical removal is the primary form of treatment for hemangiopericytoma tumors. In many cases of hemangiopericytoma tumors in the brain, minimally invasive techniques can be leveraged by accessing the tumor through the nasal canal, eliminating the need for an incision and speeding recovery times.

Hemangiopericytoma tumors often go unnoticed because of their growth in soft tissues that can make room for small amounts of growth. In the brain, excessive growth can lead to a range of symptoms depending on the tumor’s location, including:
- Nausea or vomiting
- Vision problems
- Behavioral changes
