DOI : 10.31067/0.2020.304 Hemangiopericytoma is a soft tissue tumor that originates from the pericytes in the walls of capillaries. Although there are aggressive forms of the tumor, the course is generally benign. The tumor may occur anywhere in the human body; however, the most common location is the retroperitoneum. Surgical approaches are the first choice among treatment options; however, radiotherapy and chemotherapy can rarely be applied. In this report, we present a case of hemangiopericytoma that is located in the femoral region which underwent surgical therapy at our institution.
