Intracranial meningeal hemangiopericytomas (HPCs) represent a rare and aggressive intracranial neoplasm located along the dural sinuses, tend to recur and metastasize, and account for less than 1% of intracranial tumours and approximately 2~4% of all meningeal tumors. We discuss herein the dynamic of HPCs and review the literatures from its clinical symptoms, imaging features, histopathological features, differential diagnosis and treatment and prognosis, and present a case of a 35-year-old male with metastatic recurrence of an intracranial hemangiopericytoma, who underwent resection of primary tumor in the right side of the sphenoid ridge 7 years ago.
