Abstract

A case of metastatic hemangiopericytoma involving the skin of an 82-year-old man is described. Metastatic nodules first appeared on the skin and 2 months later in the lungs. The primitive tumor was not found. The neoplasm run a fast and fatal course of about 3 months. The first metastatic skin nodule, which bled easily, underwent a cycle of radiotherapy that caused its partial regression. Clinical and histopathological aspects, differential diagnoses, prognosis and therapy of hemangiopericytoma are discussed.
