Abstract

Hemangiopericytoma of the pineal region is exceedingly rare. We describe a patient with a large pineal region hemangiopericytoma who underwent a third ventriculostomy followed by a gross total resection by a unilateral interhemispheric approach with adjuvant radiotherapy. The patient remains recurrence free 4 years after treatment.
