Lipomatous hemangiopericytoma is a very rare variant of hemangiopericytoma, which behaves in a benign fashion. It occurs in the lower extremity, the sinonasal area, the orbit, the neck, the mediastinum, the soft tissue of the shoulder, the retroperitoneum and the pelvic fossa. Histologically, it is characterized by an admixture of benign hemangiopericytomatous areas with mature adipose tissue. To date, only very few of such cases have been reported in the literature. We report here, a case of this unusual, rare tumour which occurred in a 45 year old woman.
