Abstract

Hemangiopericytoma is an uncommon tumor that occurs mostly in middle-aged adults. There have been only sporadic case reports of splenic involvement, and in all but one the treatment has been total splenectomy. We present a one-month-old boy with splenic hemangiopericytoma treated with partial splenectomy. This is the youngest case in the literature, and there has been no recurrence noted after two years of follow up.
