Solitary fibrous tumor/hemangiopericytoma in the cerebellopontine angle mimicking vestibular schwannoma: A case report and literature review.
Medicine (Baltimore). 2020 Mar; 99(13):e19651.M

Abstract

RATIONALE

Intracranial solitary fibrous tumors (SFTs) and hemangiopericytomas (HPCs) are rare spindle cell tumors of mesenchymal origin that include benign and malignant neoplasms.

PATIENT CONCERNS

We present a 66-year-old male with a 5-year history of headache and dizziness, with left progressive sensorineural hearing loss over 1 month.

DIAGNOSES

WHO grade II SFT/HPC originating from the internal auditory canal in the left cerebellopontine angle.

INTERVENTIONS

surgical resection.

OUTCOMES

No local recurrence or metastases were observed in the follow-up 3 months after the surgery.

LESSONS

Intracranial SFTs/HPCs are rare mesenchymal neoplasms that are challenging to manage. If the imaging characteristics of tumor are not typical, clinicians should depend on tissue biopsy and immunohistochemistry to make a definitive diagnosis.
