Doléagbénou Agbéko Komlan, Habibou Lamine, Djoubairou Ben Ousman, Gana Rachid, Bellakhdar Fouad


Primitive hemangiopericytomas of the central nervous system are rare and represent less than 1% of intracranial tumors. Their nonspecific clinical and imaging can be misleading and bring to a mistaken diagnosis of meningioma. Radical surgery is the treatment of choice, but must be supplemented with postoperative radiotherapy. Hemangiopericytomas have a high potential for recurrence and metastasis. Sellar location is very rare and can simulate a pituitary adenoma.We report a case of a 24 year-old woman diagnosed with sellar recurrent HPC without metastasis.
