Abstract

The authors describe the case of a 38-year-old man with progressive headache and blurred vision related to a hemangiopericytoma located exclusively in the confluence of sinuses (CoS) and in the transverse sinuses bilaterally. They believe this is the first report in which a hemangiopericytoma of the dural sinuses has been described without any intradural component. Although the diagnosis was not suspected preoperatively, a gross-total resection of the tumor with restoration of sinus patency was achieved to relieve the symptoms. This diagnosis should be included in the preoperative differential diagnosis of a tumor of the CoS. Successful resection can be achieved in these cases.
